Research Skills workshop with Grade 3
February 26, 2018
In my first set of workshops, I guided Julie’s Grade 3 class on the basics of web searching and using kid-friendly search engines such as Kiddle.
I engaged them in a discussion about why shared sites like Wikipedia and YouTube are not recommended sources for academic research. We went over a very simple bibliography and then I got students to team up and research bugs. It was a fun project overall and the kids really got into their research subjects.
Here are some examples of the finished product:
I was very proud of these kids who had to pick up a lot of skills in a two period workshop. They did great work!
