This powerpoint covers the uses of different reference books. Each slide describes a different reference book and what it is used for. Reference books discussed include: dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopedia, atlas, almanac, newspaper, telephone book, magazine, and how-to-books. The powerpoint can be used as an introduction or review of all the different types of reference books. I also have an assessment posted that can be used to check for students understanding.
Thanks for looking,
Good basic information. Tweaked it a little bit to jazz it up but the information was good.

Kids need all the review they can get. Even then it doesn't seem to be enough. Thank you

This will definitely be a good review for my middle school students and intro to our state test prep mini-unit. Well-organized for taking notes. Covers all reference books, including how-to books, with brief definitions. Teachers can add on if needed.
This is currently my sixth year as a classroom teacher. My first three years were spent teaching a self contained 5th grade class. My last three years I have been teaching in a self contained 3rd grade classroom.
