Our first topic is Chewing Gum
The first step was introducing the Topic which was easy peasy to for them to identify.
The next step was identifying subtopics, which I don't think either of them have ever been taught before. I asked them what did they want to know about chewing gum. Then we made a list and was able to come up with three subtopics.
We went on and read some information about Chewing Gum which helped them learn to take notes and identify sources for their research topic.
