Social Studies Research

Mrs. Asquith's fifth grade Social Studies have been visiting the library quite frequently in order to find reliable sources for their research.  Earlier in November, the class visited to use the Maps 101 database to locate information about countries in South America.  Together we practiced how to read a topographical map in order to see the various elevations in different countries.

This week, the class returned to finish up finding some facts about the world's biomes.  We used both World Book and Grolier to find information.  The students are doing a great job with using these resources!

Using World Book to learn about biomes.

I also wanted to share some of the great biome artwork!
