Informational Text and Reporting on Insects

I was so impressed today with my class.  In conclusion to our insect unit we read more informational text using the computer and non fiction books I had checked out from the library.  The students completed a prewrite page to gather information to report about and then published wonderful books on their topic.  It took us all morning but it was a valuable experience.  To begin they worked in groups of four with the same insect to share information they had found in their books and on the computer.  I tried to group them in a number of abilities but I found even some of my "pokey" learners participated and had information to share.
Your freebie is a little "pre write" for research.  Enjoy!  Michele
