This is an introductory lesson on citing sources meant for elementary students. It is a simplified version of the MLA style not the exact MLA style.
Please do not ding this for accuracy : )
The How To Cite Sources contains:
• Lesson Plan
How to Cite Sources includes a PowerPoint with an accompanying lesson plan, worksheets and posters of the PowerPoint that can be put on a bulletin board. The lesson covers copyright, plagiarism, citations and sources. The lesson shows how to cite from a book, ebook, magazines, online magazines, print encyclopedias, online encyclopedias and CD-ROM encyclopedias.
There are 3 sets of How to Cite Sources bookmarks for the kids to choose from. Each set covers how to cite the five sources. The bookmarks come 5 to a page. They are about 7.5” x 2”. You can print them back to back using the “Flip Pages on the Short Edge” setting and I would recommend using cardstock. You can also print them one sided.
You could laminate and hole punch the How to Cite Sources bookmarks and use a brad or ring to hold them together if you like.
