Locating bibliographic information on a website to create a Works Cited can be a difficult process for students. This PowerPoint Lesson and Activity on How to Locate Bibliographic Information on Websites has helped my students enormously!
What you will receive in this zipped folder:
~ A 35-slide PowerPoint lesson.
Part One covers the difference between websites and web pages, shares tips for locating web page or article titles, helps students to identify author information and how to distinguish between author and publisher, assists students to locate the date of last update and tells what is *not* the date of last update, and helps kids figure out what to do when they can’t find any of it.
~ Part Two of the PowerPoint lesson uses two well-known websites to guide students through the process of locating bibliographic information. This activity comes with a PDF Website Bibliographic Information Form
that students can use to write in the information they collect.
~ Lastly, a seven-page Notes document
walks you through the activity, with options for individual and small group work. It discusses every piece of information collected on the activity’s websites and provides additional information that can help you as you guide students to identify the correct items. It also suggests other websites for additional practice.
This item can help support CCSS ELA Writing Standard 8 on multiple grade levels: Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources.

If you like the idea of a Website Bibliographic Information Form but know that you want students to use more sources than just websites, check out these additional two products in my TPT store:
PDF All-in-One Bibliographic Information Collection Form
includes spaces for students to write down the bibliographic information they collect from the seven most-used sources in research projects: books, reference materials, magazine articles, databases, websites, online video, and digital images.
