This is a step-by-step guide for primary students who are learning how to use Internet Search Engines.
Included are links to kid-friendly sites, as well as practice with keywords and determining important information. Also included is an animal report kids complete, along with a suggested extension activity on creating a "Zooland" in your room!
This can be used as a whole class introduction to search engines (showing the PDF as a slide show on the projector), or you can make it more individual, with students completing the activities in the lab, or a combination of both!
My students really enjoyed working with this packet and learning about keywords and narrowing their search! It is very versatile and can be used for multiple levels. I've also used it with fourth graders as a way to introduce internet research skills, practicing for their big research project!
