To make internet searching safe and easy, I used Google’s URL Shortener to create easy to type websites for students. These are located on the 28 natural resource cards that you will assign to students. These are websites my students use to complete their research, and I have personally checked each website to make sure it is appropriate for students to view. I have also enclosed a separate PDF file of just the cards for you to share with students if you choose to do so. Students can easily click each link within the PDF of the cards.
***You will need internet access for students to complete this project.
TIP: Print or copy the 28 Natural Resources Research Cards on cardstock and laminate for durability.
A direction sheet for teachers is included.
