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!
