Review with your students how to use different types of reference materials with this Google Slides resource. Students will work directly in Google Slides or Microsoft OneDrive to compete the activities #tptdigital
What is included
⇒ Teacher directions – includes the access links and instructions on how to use this in your library or classroom
⇒ Instructions for using this resource with Microsoft OneDrive
⇒ 4 Google Slide files (Reference Materials file, Online Encyclopedia file and answer keys for each)
• The reference materials file is 9 slides. There are two slides that review what each type of reference material is and when to use each of the sources.
• Almanac slide (students look up the answers to 6 different questions)
• Thesaurus practice (2 slides)
• Atlas scavenger hunt (students look up the answers to 7 different questions)
• Using a dictionary (3 slides)
****The almanac worksheet was created using the National Geographic Kid's 2017 edition. I tried to make the questions generic enough that any edition would work.
• Online Encyclopedia file has 4 slides
♦ Introduction to an online encyclopedia
♦ an example of reading an online encyclopedia article
♦ 2 scavenger hunt slides (students answer several different questions)
Most of the slides require students to type in their answers or use moveable shapes on the slides. I did include text boxes every place students need to type in text.
Please look at the preview before purchasing. The preview does show every slide that you will receive (answer keys are not shown).
