Online Resources
Note: You will need to contact your child’s teacher in order to get login information for the following sites.

Enchanted Learning
Discovery Education
World Book Encyclopedia Online Student Edition

This unit includes a research project. I recommend using Canadian Student Research Centre from EBSCOhost to find articles and information. Canadian Student Research Centre is a fantastic tool that will enable your child to conduct age-appropriate research. NOTE: you will need to contact your child’s teacher order to get the login information for EBSCOhost. Once you have logged in you will be able to choose from a range of search options.
