The Database Detectives Using World Book Online is an engaging activity that students will love. Used in a game format, students won't even realize they are practicing skills, such as: using an educational database to find information, identifying keywords, reading authentic expository text, reading to gain information, and working cooperatively.
Used as a worksheet for a center activity or for a super simple substitute plan, students will still enjoy getting to use the computer to find information, and teachers &/or librarians will appreciate how easy it is to assess the skills listed above.
What you will get with this product:
* Cover Sheet
* Instructions for using as a game
* 12 question cards
* Answer key
When copied onto cardstock & laminated, this activity will be one you'll be happy to use year after year.
Before purchasing this item, make sure your students have access to computers with internet access and that you have a subscription to World Book Online. I usually have one computer per every 2 students.
