I just found this AWESOME resource called InstaGrok. It allows students to search on any informational topic and gives them a Web Diagram of information that automatically eliminates profanity and irrelevant sites. They can link to websites, images, videos, key points, add notes on their discoveries- it is amazing. Teachers can even create classroom accounts in which students can create online research journals using this site. I am ABSOLUTELY going to use it with my 4th and 5th graders next lesson cycle as we learn more about text features and investigation in research.
For my MS/HS classes- I am posting an example of a search I did on Web Quests. This should help them get a better idea of what their next project is all about. So EXCITING!!
