Teaching research skills is a breeze with these fun, reproducible lessons! Through a variety of engaging projects, students experience and learn research techniques that they can use throughout their lives. In one lesson, they take a treasure hunt approach, consulting standard library materials such as Current Biography, Dictionary of American History, Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, and Contemporary Authors, to find answers to a series of reference questions. In another students write letters (term papers in disguise) that describe in detail a future cruise. In the process they learn how to take notes and combine facts to produce an interesting paper and an accurate bibliography. Projects include topics for science, foreign language, social science, and language arts.
