December Fact Files: Collecting Information from Non-Fiction Text



You can purchase this as part of a growing Fact File BUNDLE here > Fact Files BUNDLE: Informational Text.  

What is a Fact File? 

A Fact File is a student-generated resource used to record and store information about a particular topic, using the guidance of the templates included within. Each template is pasted into a file folder to help students organize and collect information about a given topic. Fact Files are a great addition to your current non-fiction studies! {Be sure to check out the preview for a sample Fact File!}

Each Fact File contains the following elements to help guide the student’s exploration and study of a particular topic:
– What do you know about.. web (complete before study formally begins)
– Questions I Have About.. template (complete before and during study)
– Fact Cards + Fact Card Pocket
– Sticky Note Spot 
– Vocabulary Envelope
– Directed List space
– Diagram drawing spot
– Collection Pocket

The December Fact File set includes templates for studying: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Reindeer, and Needs/Wants.  I also included a *fun* Fact File for Santa Claus!  It is slightly different from the other templates, as it includes opportunities to write a letter to Santa (in place of vocabulary words) and a place to draw/write directions to the child’s house (in place of a collection pocket).  

Please Note: This is not a lesson plan and does not include activities or lessons for completing the Fact File.
