In fourth grade, students have been learning about immigration for the past several weeks. While wrapping up the unit, each student is assigned a topic of their choice. Using books and websites, fourth-graders used notecards to record their facts, citing each source and writing a five-paragraph essay to share their knowledge.
Their papers will include a table of contents, text features and a bibliography. This is a long but very worthwhile process and is incredibly helpful and important in preparing our fourth-grade students for Middle School!
