5th Grade Women's History Month research

Good morning! I am excited to be helping you with the research project you will be working on in class. Today in the library, we will visit Britannica Online via MARVEL to find information on a famous woman. Here are our learning targets:

  • I can access the database and complete a keyword search.
  • I can move between reading levels in the database.
  • I can find the icons for listening to the text and for citing it in my bibliography.

Today we learned about Lonnie Johnson by reading this biography. This article has some photographs that match the illustrations we saw in the book.

Mock Caldecott!


We have spent the past few weeks studying these picture books and trying to choose our favorite for our Mock Caldecott. This is the week that the Caldecott will be announced, so it's time to make our decision! We will use this Flipgrid to share our favorites with students in Georgetown and Phippsburg as well as our own WCS friends!
