Conducting Short Research Projects

Common Core State Standards W.3.7, W.4.7, and W.5.7 ask students to "conduct short research projects that build knowledge through investigation of different aspects of a topic," and W.3.7, W.4.7, and W.5.7 instruct them to "interpret information presented visually or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, diagrams, ... or interactive elements on Web pages." I have found that flip books really motivate students to conduct short research projects using the Internet.

Here are a few examples:

Inner pages may be lined, bulleted, framed for drawing pictures, or blank. Simply stagger page lengths, staple, and set your students loose! 

The thing I love best about flip books is that they provide polished products with no fuss. Enjoy!
