So Ds has to research an animal with the help of an adult at home and answer 4 questions. We are allowed to use the computer.
Today while helping at school I've noticed some students have handed in work with the information cut and pasted straight from the Internet for answers. I'm just wondering how the parents can think this is ok and what the teacher mignt do/say?
For my sons work, we found the information and either I dictated it to him (while he typed very slowly) or I typed while he dictated what I summarised on paper.
I'm just wondering if others (and primary teachers) had experienced the same.

I'm not a teacher and probably completely wrong -
While I would not encourage it, I wouldn't frown upon it at that age. As long as all 4 answers are correct and it shows that they have actually researched/read about it, I don't think there would be that much expectation of a 6-7 year old.

Ok fair enough. I just didn't think that cutting and pasting straight from the Internet would be ok seeing that it's not allowed in highschool.
Hopefully they are taught to summaries the information into their own words (even one sentence!) as they progress through primary school.

I'm sure they will be taught, but I'd imagine the purpose of grade 1 assignments would be very simplistic.

I'm a teacher. Obviously, we can always tell a cut and paste job (or when parents have done projects). I don't really say much - what can you say? - but your DS will hopefully get a lot more out of it than the other kiddies. Kudos for doing it properly. I wish more parents did this!
