Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Description

Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

This unit is incorporated into our 5th Grade Project Lead The Way (PLTW) unit, Robotics, and my students are going to write an informational piece on how robots can help humans and society.  Module One in PLTW is all about how robots can help in disasterous, dangerous and dirty situations.

This integrated literacy and science unit guides students through a cooperative learning webquest in which students work in groups of 4, completing different jobs as part of a "company" that is designing a trip to one of the planets in our solar system.  Each job requires students to research and create some sort of written out-put (travel brochure, essay, or diagrams with descriptions).
