This is a comprehensive PPT on reference books including the Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Atlas, Almanac and Thesaurus. I have used it as an introduction and my students have been successful in being able to identify them and use them throughout the year. I've included sound effects and animation. Print out slide 13 for students to fill in as a We Do. I make my PPTs kid friendly and entertaining. At the end, students solve the riddles of identifying each reference book. It can be used in grades 3 - 6. Be sure to download the KBPlanetEarth font.
