Finding Information – Databases

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.

1194499

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).
