Excellent PowerPoint Lesson to teach your students about how and why we use the Almanac. Discusses purpose, usage, index, contents, varieties, and more. Content is very practical. Can be used in the classroom or library media center. Total 9 slides. (Power Point)
Overall, I really liked it. I would have liked to see some more traditional almanacs included. Also would have liked the information spread out over several slides because it was so jam packed full of good stuff. I agree a few more practice questons. A little pricey for 9 slides. But I would check out your stuff again :)
Didn't like it was targeted toward one specific alamanac.

I really like the Powerpoint, but wish it were longer and more detailed. I felt like it could have had more practice questions and more than 9 slides.

Great for my 6th & 7th graders. The questions on our state test give choices of reference sources and ask which would be used to locate certain info. Used it for note taking to fill in a Venn diagram comparing an almanac and an encyclopedia because those seem to be the two that are often confusing to students. I think this helped clarify the difference for them in conjunction with looking at a volume of the encyclopedia and the few almanacs we have. Thanks!!
My 4th graders loved this presentation! Thanks so much!

Great PowerPoint to use with my 5th graders to introduce the Almanac. A little colorful, but information was great and the real images from the book are perfect. Overall this was a great find and saved me lots of work!
