They started this research project when we returned from Christmas Break. They were given a list of authors with the books they had written. They chose an author. We brought in the mini laptop computers and they researched that author. They created a letter to inform a younger student about how cool authors are. They wrote reflections and summaries over their books. Finally, they created posters that they presented to the younger students in the school, while being dressed up as the main character in their book.It was a great success.
