First grade is very busy learning how to research a topic. We started by learning that research is finding the answer to questions. We learned the different places to find information (Internet, books, personal interviews, observations, and other sources). We used our trip to the zoo as a time to observe. Last week we started using the other sources in centers. I am so proud of how hard kids are working. Be sure to check out the zoo we recreated with our measurements. This is project based learning at its best!
