Project Info & Documents
Research involves locating the information you need. EVERY topic has articles in at least two of the resources listed. Use the obvious keywords to search for information but you may also need to think a bit harder to figure out keywords that will produce the information you are looking for.
Usernames and Passwords for Kids Info Bits, e-Library, SIRS Discoverer, & SIRS Knowledge Source are in edline (home page, left hand column).
Go to Google Classroom for a Source Evaluation Sheet.
Print materials about the listed topics are available to students in school only during this project. Below are just a few of the books the Media Center is providing to meet your research needs.
