I use this as a prequel to my middle school research unit. Many students who come to seventh grade have never done a full-blown research project before, so they are often lost when it comes to citing sources. This worksheet is a neat little one-bell classwork activity that gives them a foundation for giving credit and citing sources.
I have found it helpful to do this before assigning our big research project, so my students can take some time and just focus on learning how to cite sources using MLA format before having to pull all their skills together and write a research paper.
