This past week we learned about how to find sources of information. We read about Kites from the book Toys! Amazing Stories Behind Some Great Inventions by Don Wulffson.
We then talked about how to find additional information about kites using databases. We talked about what a database is and why they are a good source of information (organized, fact checked, paid online resources, require a username and password). Students then looked up another invention using INFOhio – K-5 – World Book for Kids and filled out a worksheet – Describe /purpose and History (who/when).
