What began as a lesson of integration turned out to be the greatest writing project. Mrs. Clarke’s fourth grade students were reading nonfiction as a part of their units of study. They were also studying Animal Adaptations in Science. Inorder to write their books the students had to first learn how to read and select the main idea and find the details to support their idea. The students were also thought the \]importance of writing the information researched in their own words. students selected animals that they knew nothing about as well as they were curious to learn more about. By the end of the first week they students had gathered so much information reading from a variety of sources. They had mastered finding and identifying the main idea just by talking to their partners about the section they read without looking at the section, noticing that it was what the author focused on for that section.
