Using Resources - Encyclopedia & Atlas

This week in English, my students learned how to use references to locate specific information. Today, our Friday Fun Day activity involved the use of Encyclopedias and Atlases.  The students worked in groups to research a state. Each group researched a different state from the United States of their choosing.  Their research packet included specific questions about the state, and students were required to use the encyclopedia and atlas to answer the questions.

Once they answered the questions, they created a poster which includes some of the facts they researched.  At the end of the day, students presented their poster and research information to the class.

Here are some pictures of the worksheet they fillled out.  You can download this worksheet here.

Here are the kids working on their posters.


These are the finished posters.
