Gladstone Street School Library: Third Grade

Introduction to Encyclopedias

With your partner, watch the following slideshow about using encyclopedias. When you are done watching it, raise your hand and I will give you a piece of paper with a question on it. You and your partner will need to figure out which volume of the encyclopedia to use and find the answer. When you have found the answer, put your names on the paper and recorded the volume and page number, please turn the paper over. Read the questions on the back and discuss them with your partner before writing your answers down. Good luck!

You are going to use an online flash card tool called Quizlet to learn "parts of a book" vocabulary. You will start by using the cards to read and learn the vocabulary. After going through the cards until you are confident you know the terms and their meanings, you will play the Scatter Game. Play the Scatter Game until you can finish it in under a minute.

If you are working with a partner you will take turns until you can both complete the Scatter Game in under a minute.

Once you can finish the Scatter Game in under a minute you may play the Space Race game.
