8th grade research paper help

Recommended Posts

Are there any good resources for writing an 8th grade research paper? We are using Lively Art of Writing this year, which does have a chapter on writing a thesis for this type of paper, but only has more general tips for things like taking notes. And the section on research is all about how to use a card catalog. :lol:  Are there any resources you have found helpful for taking notes, organizing the research, and writing the paper?

I have used these free resources with success with my middle schoolers:
