Category Description for Research Tool Kit:

Writing a research paper can be intimidating for beginners. This series attempts to make the process less scary (even fun!) for kids. Each book covers a different aspect of the research process, walking students through the steps in a bite-sized, logical fashion. Colorful graphics, photos, and text boxes work to keep kids interested. Checklists and charts provide handy "how-to's" for kids to refer to throughout their projects. Vocabulary words appear in bold and are defined at the bottom of the page and in the index. Several hands-on activities per book give students the opportunity to practice and apply what they've learned. For example, some of the activities in Smart Research Strategies include: making a biographical outline of a famous American; comparing sources on your favorite animal species; and identifying a list of sources as primary or secondary. The back of each book has an index, glossary, sources for further reading, and an access code to the Facthound internet site. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
