Dear Parents,

            Division 5 is beginning a project that integrates units in Science and Language Arts.  Each student has chosen a mineral that they will research.  Then, using the information that they find, they will create an informative brochure.  This brochure will include a variety of features that are used in many non-fiction texts that we have discussed in class.  The purpose of this project is to identify and use a variety of text features in order to highlight important information about one specific mineral. 

            Read over the following criteria and discuss with your child their plan for how to complete this project to the best of their ability.  Please complete the bottom of this sheet with your child and return to school by Thursday, October 9.


1) Brochure includes (but is not limited to) the following text features:
-titles                                                  -fact box
-picture                                              -coloured words
-informative paragraph #1 that describes colour, lustre, hardness, etc.
-informative paragraph #2 that describes uses for the mineral

2) Paragraphs contain all necessary information, adhere to conventions, and show a unique style.

3) The brochure looks bright and eye-catching.  It is carefully and thoughtfully put together and is completed on time.

*This project will be due on Thursday, October 16.
