    How often do the students visit the library? Once a week?? Thank you for sharing how you accomplish so much in one class period!

    Where can I find your 6 Research Centers>

    • Hello Kim! Thanks for the question! I have 2 of the centers in my TpT store here:
      Ladybug Observation and Research Center
      Bird Watching and Research Center

      The Question of the Week center is from Mrs. Lodge’s Library, and I use Elementary Library Mama’s Encyclopedia Task Cards with that center too.

      The last research center I offer is an Independent Research Center with the option of adding suggested research topics related to a theme or school read-aloud. I don’t have that posted to my store yet.

      My students can visit any combination of the above centers to complete 6 research activities with citations.

        Thank you so much for your speedy reply! I am trying to maximize my time with the kids and give them some choices too. I was really curious how you did your research center(s). This is very helpful and I will be following you for sure!! Have a great day!
