This short research project about utopias helps students practice skills like summarizing, paraphrasing, embedding quotes, and citing sources. Each side of the Research Cube targets a different research skill and facet of the topic. Students will love this alternative to a research paper! Use this project in conjunction with any dystopian novel study like The Giver or The Hunger Games, or as a stand-alone project. Includes project guidelines, rubric, research sheet, and samples (gr. 4-9).
