21st Century Fact Finds Using Online Research Tools to Reinforce Common Core Skills Grade 4
Fascinating stories help students develop skills not only in comprehension and vocabulary, but also in critical thinking since they have to do some research to determine which "facts" are true and which aren't facts at all!
Students find this information by using online research tools including:
- Encyclopedias and Atlases
- Temperature, Currency and Metric Converters
- Image Galleries
Follow-up questions require students to synthesize what they researched and apply their knowledge.
A related writing exercise challenges them to think critically about what they have read, form opinions using information they inferred or determined to be true or false, an combine logical reasoning with writing mechanics.
