This packet contains 15 worksheets spanning several disciplines and subjects including social studies, science, physical education, and reading. This set will work well in either a language arts or library instruction setting. All assignments will align easily with the Common Core research standards, if this is a necessity. Students are asked to utilize reputable websites or a good online encyclopedia to find information to complete each task with fun and engaging topics!
Assignments are available in different formats: multiple choice, matching, short answer, and short essay. In some cases, extension assignments are also available, which might provide excellent springboards into large-scale research projects and presentations. I hope these are helpful!
Additionally, there are two assignments in this packet – Keyword Keepers and Subject Searches – that introduce students to the challenging world of Internet research. If your students are inexperienced online searchers, consider starting them on these two assignments.

(1) Keyword Keepers
(2) Subject Searches

(4) Landforms and Bodies of Water
