First Graders Dive into Research
First Grade recently worked on a new unit in writing. Students dug deep into Non- fiction. The children were encouraged to choose a topic that interested them. For three days the students worked on the computers gathering information about their topic. The students used NC Wise Owl, Brittanica, National Geographic kids, Kid Rex and Google for Kids to search for information. After research on the computer was finished the students spent about a day or so researching their topics with books. Then the students organized all of the information they learned on separate sheets and added headers. The students took all of the information recorded on sticky notes and transformed them into chapters. All of the students plan to share their books with their classmates and then put them on display in the first grade hallway. The first grade teachers and students are proud of the work.
