How to Search Using Google

posted Apr 13, 2016, 8:43 AM by kmcmillan@ctkschool.org   [ updated Sep 11, 2016, 3:54 PM ]

Today we are going to practice searching the internet for information. The hardest part of searching the internet is that there is SOOOOOO MUCH INFORMATION! We need to learn to narrow - or "refine" - our search to find just what we want.


Start here: The Google

Pick a habitat and search for it. Remember to:
  • read your results and refine your search
  • add the words "kids" or "simple" to get results written for students
  • avoid Ad results
