A great way to start back from a long break is by letting your students engage in a fun piece with research! Students will choose an Arctic animal to research and then write a suspenseful riddle using the facts and information from their research. (For those of you just joining us, we are using Empowering Writers January Lessons of the Month for this research project. Click here to download the lesson plans)
Here is a the completed chart from the video. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to create this with your students. Make sure you leave the chart up as they do their research. This helps them feel as if they have control over what they are learning.
