Giddy-up! It's Reference Resource Round-up!

Students choose a question from the 'Wonder' box which is placed on a centralized table. Questions are designed to point students to a particular best reference material such as: an atlas, a dictionary, an encyclopedia, an almanac, the internet or a database. Working in pairs, they need to answer 6 questions, write the question, the answer, and where they discovered the answer.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
