Junior School Resource Centre

Over the coming weeks I will be demonstrating to the boys in Years 3 to 5 the use of the two online encyclopedias: Encyclopedia Britannica and World Book, and giving them the opportunity to practice using their many features. These products are designed to provide information at the correct level for primary students and direct them to websites that are appropriate in both their reading level and content. As with any skills, if the boys can develop good research habits early and use these products as their initial "go to" for research rather than just "Googling" for information, it will lay a solid foundation as they move through their educational journey.

All members of the College community can access the Online Encyclopedias by going to home.scotch/library/junior.

Happy Researching!
