A research template for students to use when writing an informative text.

Provide this teaching resource to students when they are researching for an informative text.

Students research an object, event, or process, then record their research in the template as bullet point notes.

The template enables students to record the following information:

  • the question they are going to answer in the text
  • the process, e.g., how a particular object works or why a particular event happens
  • a word bank of subject-specific vocabulary related to the topic.
