As a librarian, I am passionate about Capstone's PebbloGo. It is a subscription database created especially for primary students. It is perfect for both literacy and research objectives!! If you haven't ever used it, look into the 30 day FREE trial.

Although this Research Short is designed to be used with Capstone's PebbleGo Animals database, it could be used with books and other resources as well. The project will lead students in reading a question, identifying the dog breed to research, and then further analyzing which of the dog breed articles to focus on ... body, size, life cycle, care, or fun facts. These foundation skills are necessary for information literacy.
