Middle School Writing:  End of the Year Research Project
This resource guides students through the process of gathering information for a basic, five-paragraph research report which can then be used to create a visual presentation, such as a PowerPoint, Prezi, tri-fold document, or video. The suggested timeframe is five days, making it a perfect wrap-up at the end of the year.


16-slide PowerPoint, which guides students through brainstorming a topic, writing a research question, and gathering information. The PowerPoint models each step in the process with sample brainstorming questions, Google searches, source notes, and an example of a rough draft and Prezi based on the information gathered.

4-page packet, includes pages for notes from the PowerPoint, question-writing practice, notes from sources, and a rough draft

Suggested timeline:

Day 1: PowerPoint notes and brainstorming
Day 2: Refine the research question and begin research
Day 3: Complete research
Day 4: Write the rough draft and begin the product
Day 5: Complete the product
