ABOUT THIS INTERACTIVE  

Overview

 

 

Fact Fragment Frenzy, included in an extended research skills unit which also employs the Hints about Print interactive, aids students in learning the importance of finding the words in sentences and paragraphs that contain the facts they need for compiling their research. They practice by pulling important words from a text over to a virtual notebook (shown at left). The students then move to putting those notes into their own words, avoiding plagiarism. Having elementary students participate in the fact-finding process early in their school experience promises to enrich further study and enjoyment of nonfiction texts.
