So exCITEd about bibliographies!


Hehe. You see what I did there?
So my son is in 5th grade and has been working hard on animal research reports this school year. One thing I have been trying to teach him about is citing sources and creating a bibliography. I know, fun stuff right there, but is one of those things all writers need to learn.

So today my computer journey lead me to seek ways to teach this to him and resources for well...documenting resources!


This handy video teaches kids how to write a bibliography.

                   
Want an easy way to cite? Go to Cite This for Me.

             Here are some activities to incorporate EasyBib into your elementary school classroom:

And I like this flow chart for deciding on whether something needs citing or not...
