Hello! :) I hope you are enjoying your long weekend.
Now that your child has chosen a topic to research, I am linking a site that might help you and your child gather information on your child's Curiosity Project and concept map creation. You can further research your topic, create a concept map with big ideas and details, and take notes on a notepad provided (or use it to add to their own concept map). Be sure to watch the 3 minute introduction video. The most important thing to remember is that this is a introduction to research to all 1st and 2nd grade students. It is not meant to be frustrating, just an exciting adventure into questioning, finding new information, connecting information already known, compiling all that information into a thoughtful report that makes sense and provides complete thoughts, and presenting that wonderful new information to an audience in a creative way.
Have fun and please let me know if you have any questions. :)
