Center Objective: Students will use library resources to answer a trivia question.

I made my Question of the Week Library Center with the intention that students will use our library resources more frequently (not just when we do a full research project) and practice searching for very specific information.
This is a second set of different questions and answers for the upcoming school year. Answers can be found in nonfiction books, print encyclopedias, and databases such as PebbleGo, Kids InfoBits, Grolier, World Book Online, and Encyclopedia Britannica. The answer sheets list two to three electronic sources per question.
