First Grade Information Gatherers: questions lead to answers which lead to more questions

The first grade researchers are in the library! I love this first exploration into gathering information. 

This is a collaborative project with the classroom teacher.  The students come to the library or I go to their classroom. The students listen to articles in PebbleGo and Encyclopedia Britannica as well as explore the print resources. Several parent volunteers help make this project a success.

The information gathering packet is fairly traditional. 

A few years ago, the teacher and I added the page that I think is important, it asks the students to think about their own questions, especially those that may have arisen during their reading. I hope they get the message that questions and information gathering never really ends.
There is plenty here to keep these researchers busy!
