In this teaching reflection, I explain the strategies that I use with my students to help them make predictions about where to place these new animals.  I also explain how I guide my students in finding reliable information on the Internet by making a list of initial questions, performing a keyword search, and then compiling a new list of questions.

In this teaching reflection, I explain how I help my students determine that they need multiple sources to really understand the background information for this topic. I also explain how I help students determine the reliability of sources and the importance of reading primary documents.
