Nonfiction File Folder Project

So this is NOT my original idea! I got this from a 4th grade teacher are my last school. After I review nonfiction text features with my third graders they will each get a file folder (I have already premade 25 file folders and divided them into 8 sections) a sheet of directions and a nonfiction book. I love the Scholastic Vocabulary Readers! I have them for all the topics and they are perfect for my lower readers. After modeling the project the students will be left alone to complete it. Here's a sample of a completed folder.















Here are the directions along with a rubric. Do you think you'll use this project with your students? I'd love to hear your feedback!
 
Apparently the project has been archived on Scribd, I have uploaded it on GoogleDocs as I cannot keep up with the requests to email the document.

  17. I modified your assignment to fit my needs for 5th grade. I posted it on my blog and referred back to you and your great project. I hope it's okay that I did that. If it's a problem just let me know and I'll remove it. Here is my link: http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=6645107516453750951#editor/target=post;postID=1218739183467197139
