I've used this ages K-5 to have students share and discuss information necessary for creating an accurate and informative lesson plan. It pushes students to not only use their reading and writing skills but problem solve what information is necessary and what is not. From the information gathered, we create a final museum label that can be used in our art shows. It's a great assessment tool of learning as well.
