Grade 3 Research Project Resources
During the third grade, students are exposed to their first district research experiences. However, prior to these projects, students participate in an Intro to Research Program, which consists of several mini lessons in the library media center and/or their classrooms. These lessons include:
- Use of Non-fiction Books and Text Features
- Use of Encyclopedias
- Use of Atlases and Almanacs
- Note-taking Skills
- Acceptable Use Policy
The first formal research project focuses on planets. The second research project focuses on ethnic heritage and immigration.
