My fault?

Having a tough day...I teach sixth grade writing and am fortunate to have great colleagues! Several of us have teamed up to tackle the teaching of the sixth grade research paper, each focusing on different areas but delivering the same general ideas. We did this last year, too.

After starting to grade a few papers, we quickly realized they are very poorly done. About half of the kids didn't even use in-text citations, so they earned a zero in that area of the rubric right off of the bat.

So..what would you do? Think something wasn't clear on our end and offer extra credit or a chance to revise the assignment? Or...just give them the grade they earned? After all, we all went over the assignment as we worked on different areas, posted countless guiding PowerPoints and Docs on Google Classroom, etc and they are in sixth grade.
