This is a PowerPoint guided lesson on choosing and using sources of information such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, and almanacs. This PowerPoint is intended to be a guided lesson on selecting resource tools, using key words, and ultimately finding information in those resources. The PowerPoint is the introduction to a Sources of Information Relay Game the students will complete in small groups (game purchased separately).
The lesson and the additional game are very engaging and allow students to practice using reference skills in a fun and interactive way!
Please note: the activity requires use of informational tools such as a newspaper, atlas, encyclopedia set, etc... and the answers to the questions will vary depending on the exact versions of the tools used. Please change answers accordingly prior to use.
