Library: 5th Grade
A great place to begin your RESEARCH is the library catalog. The Library catalog will help you find books, websites, even an article from a magazine! (see tabs across top of the results page)
Look for kid reviews of books at Spaghetti Book Club. You can search by title or age of reviewer.

Encyclopedia Britannica has general informational articles, charts, pictures and video. You must use your MPH ID and PW to access the Online Databases handout with URL, ID and PW info or see a librarian for handouts.
When you use EMAIL, remember "netiquette:"
- Keep messages short and to the point.
- Use mixed lowercase and uppercase letters. Text in all uppercase is considered SHOUTING.
- Use an appropriate subject line.
- Pay attention to grammar and spelling. People will form an opinion of you based on how you write.
- Spell check!
- Sign your name or create a "signature line."
