I'm reviewing reference resources with my third graders, including the dictionary.
We recently read a great little book about Noah Webster by Jeri Chase Ferris and illustrated by Vincent X. Kirsch.
|A great read about Noah Webster|
My students, being the smart little ones that they are, took issue with a reference to "states" when they thought it should have read "colonies". After we sorted that business out, I decided it would be fun to use Ferris' book as an excuse to review some of our reference resources.
Here is a station activity that I created for use by my third graders.
You use the station signs and the teacher resources found at the Noah Webster house and at Jeri Chase Ferris' website.
I haven't tested this activity yet with my third graders, so I imagine there will be tweaks, which I will upload as I make them.
En - joy!
