Scholars in 5th grade are working on a compare and contrast research paper on animal and plant cells. Scholars are using a technique called graffiti notes, where they answer research questions as groups, on chart paper, placed around the room. Every 4 minutes they rotate to the next location, synthesizing information from their informational text and placing this information on chart paper. Then this chart paper with an entire class set of notes will be used as rough drafts are written for this research paper.
