The Resources available to students fall into three main areas:

This page contains resources for students who want to do RESEARCH

There will be a lot of overlap of resources when it comes to researching history, biology, geography, geology, etc.

Want to do some independent research?

Here are some places to start:

Independent Research:

1. Start with a google search. Example, if your question is “When were the first Olympic Games?” then type ” Olympics first game, kids”

Can you read what you found? If not, search by reading level:
