PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Power Point presentation offers an overview of the five main reference books: Atlas, Almanac, Dictionary, Encyclopedia, and Thesaurus. The presentation is intended to introduce these print reference materials to students. There is an explanation on each slide of what each reference book is used for. Additionally, mneumonic and other memory devices are used to help students remember which reference book is which.

The Power Point includes animations but is clean and easy to read, not full of extra animations, clip art, etc to distract students. This Power Point is great for use in the library teaching reference skills or in the classroom as using print reference materials is part of the Common Core.

You may also be interested in these Reference Book Scenario Cards which help your students practice choosing appropriate reference books depending on what they are searching for.
