2nd Grade Classes learn to Research Online

As part of learning how to research using online resources, all of 2nd Grade did a class PowerPoint on Cheetahs. It was a great way to learn as a group the process of sifting through information to find what we need to do our reports. The classes did a great job working together and are ready to do some research in groups! As part of the learning process, students learned how to navigate the school and library websites to find our Online Databases and Encyclopedias. Ask a Second Grader how to use PebbleGo, Britannica Encyclopedia and World Book Encyclopedia to conduct Research.
