Using a Search Engine to Research Material
This is a lesson plan to teach elementary students how to use search engines for finding research material online. Teaching students to use child-friendly search engines is important to protect them from being exposed to undesireable material. Although this lesson is directed towards teaching second and third grade students in finding scientific information for a unit on Earth's Changes, it can easily be altered to accommodate any subject matter. This lesson plan uses a YouTube video instructing students on how to find written material and images using Askkids and Yahookids.
