Product Description
Reference Resources – 5th & 6th Grade (Media Interactive Notebook)

This unit provides an overview of the reference sources noted in the fifth and sixth grade ELA, Science and Social Studies standards. I came to the realization recently that while we spend a great deal of time having students use different sources, we don’t usually spend much time teaching them what they are. I believe that once they develop that understanding then using those resources becomes more productive for them. The activities highlight the standard print resources which students typically use when conducting research (almanac, atlas, dictionary, encyclopedia, nonfiction books, periodical. thesaurus) as well as various digital resources (databases, web sites, digital versions of print resources, e-books).

Through a variety of activities, students examine and review each source to discover the kind of information each one provides. Finally, students practice analyzing research questions to determine the best source to locate an answer. Please note: this unit is a overview/review of reference sources and does not include activities where the students use those resources to answer research questions. That is included in a separate unit.

Directions are also provided for using these materials in a lap book or file folder format if you are not presently using interactive notebooks in your media program.
