From Database to just takes practice in Grade 4

This week Ms Lea and Ms Ingrid have been supporting the current Grade 4 Where we are in place and time unit by sharing two new databases available from the ES Library Media Centre home page. These are World Almanac and Learn 360. 

Following on from lessons about how to locate information and articles in the World Almanac, we discussed how highlighters can be used to select keywords about the explorer Captain James Cook. Using these keywords, the girls have practiced skills of summarising their new knowledge, before sharing their ideas orally in their classrooms.
