Hi, I am wondering if anyone has any tips on helping a second grade student write a research paper! I have two third grade students and one second grader. I've been trying to teach them expository writing by having them pick a topic (with my help), come up with questions (again, with my help, or I give them questions) and use the encyclopedia or Internet to find information. Even in "kids' encyclopedias" online, the reading level is usually far too difficult for my second grade, even when read aloud. My second grader doesn't struggle with reading on his level, but I can't seem to find any sources that would be appropriate for him. I hate to not let him do research when the other two are doing it (he hates being "left out"). Currently we're researching inventions. His topic is the television, and he has 4 questions. I've tried finding age-appropriate sites that state (on his level) the information he's looking for, but can't find any! Does anyone have any ideas for early-reading (like 2-3 grade level) resources that I could use? Thanks!
