Researching and Writing a Basic Report in Second Grade

Last month our English Class second graders learned about critical thinking skills and relevant sources of information. Now the second graders are applying what they learned to compile their very first reports. The topic of the report is an animal of their own choice.

The second graders gathered information from basic print sources to make notes and write a draft in their notebooks.  The goal was to write reports representing the information in their own words.

Once they were satisfied with their draft, the second graders used the Pages app on their iPads to rewrite their reports.

They also attached an appropriate photograph to their reports.

The resulting reports were impressive while being absolutely adorable!
