INTERESTING INFORMATION POSTER PROJECT Each year as the first quarter begins, the 6th graders complete a poster project in library class. There are several objectives for the project: •

Practice Microsoft Word skills.

Add Microsoft Word skill: flowing text around a picture.

Introduce a sequence of research skills.

Reinforce citation skills.

Sequence of Research Skills: •

Can You Find What You Need? – students use the online catalog to find books that might answer their research question. Then they go to the shelves to locate the book(s).

Read and Evaluate—students read relevant parts of the book(s) and decide if the book meets their needs (can they answer the research question).

Create—students are given a set of written instructions for formatting the poster. They also create a Works Cited using MLA format.


Share What You Know—students print copies for a wall display and also save copies to the Student Shared drive. Ms. Harris uploads the posters into this online book that you are reading now!

Next, we will work on in-text attribution.

We hope you enjoy reading our current work!

A snow flake starts when water vapor sticks to a cold speck making the speck wet. As a flake falls it grows larger and heavier (but it’s still very small.) The shape of the flake depends on how wet and cold the cloud it falls through is. Because of this the odds are that no two snow crystals are exactly alike. Snowflakes are different, but they have a lot in common like us.
