We used to do a small Famous Black Americans unit when I taught 3rd grade, but we haven't done too much on the subject beyond basics since I moved to 2nd. BINGO, I thought. So this weekend I made a unit for a research project. LOL. Um...I may have spent a biiiiiiit too much time on it. But then again, I'm pretty new to creating my own lessons, at least to the point of making them like, cute.
So anyway, I wanted to share in case anyone else is interested!
A bit of a backtrack...my team had our kiddos do a research project on different Native American tribes earlier in the year...and it was awful. Well. OK. It would have been better if they had EVER done research before. Haha. Well, we did spend some time before-hand teaching them about note-taking, but I think the biggest mistake we made was not providing structure for them to let them know exactly what we expected of them. Hence, my unit using the Super 3 (Big 6? Anyone?). So yeah, apparently Primary teachers have adapted the Big 6 for their younger kiddos (praise glory be to the heavens), and it's called the Super 3. You're welcome! (That is, if this is new to you. If you already knew all about this, then who do you think you are? Do you want a cupcake or something? Geez.) But seriously.
Here's everything that's included in the unit:
Here are some peeks:
OK, I've tried over and over again to upload another pic right here, but it just isn't happening. It's the other page for Step 1: Plan It. It's included in my free preview on TpT, though (see link below).
If you think you may be interested, feel free to check out the free preview over at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
YAY Research! :D
