Steps in a Research Project


Choose your topic and think of three THICK questions about your topic.

Watch this video to learn more about thick questions.


Look for information in books and on Library Resources like

  • World Book
  • Kids Info Bits
  • SIRS Discoverer


Write a persuasive letter to your teacher, explaining why you want to learn more about your topic. Make sure to include your 3 thick questions!


After your teacher approves your topic, you can start to read and take notes to find answers to your three, thick questions.

When we take notes, we write down only the treasure words. We do not copy whole sentences.



Give credit to your sources. At Fox Run, we don't copy or plagiarize!


Create your project, using your own words, and doing your best to explain the answers to your three thick questions.


How did you do? Fill out your rubric and make changes to your project, if you need to, so that you turn in your BEST effort!
