    World Book Encyclopedia Online

    A reference book like World Book -- or even Wikipedia are great STARTING points.  You need to jot down key words about your topic to research later in other sources.  And,World Book online has links out to related articles, websites and More !



    For the 6th grade research project, Mrs. Scott recommends SIRS Discoverer (a part of Power Library) as a great database resource.

    Websites to use if your topic is Biography


    Other Good Reference Book

    There are many great books in the REFERENCE SECTION.  Reference books are good to use for research because they condense the most important pieces of information about your topic into short articles.  Here are just a FEW of the good ones:

    REF 306.03   Encyclopedia of World Cultures   

    REF 305.4    Woman's Almanac

    REF 503       New Encyclopedia of Science

    REF 920       Profiles in American History

    REF 940.53    World War II Almanac

    REF 970.004  Encyc. Native American Culture

    REF 973.2     Dictionary of American History

    And there are TONS more, just ask Mrs. Scott for advice.
