Earlier this week, you started Stage 1 of the inquiry process, when you all came up with your own inquiry questions.

Now, as you start your research, you must consider where you can find out the answers to your questions.

As you start your investigations into your own inquiry question, you will be examining information from a number of sources. Think about what sources might be credible. Which sources can you trust to be factual? Which sources should you be wary of? How can you check that one source is credible?

To get you started, here is a list of websites that might help you start your investigations. There is also plenty of space non-fiction texts in our room and in 5S.

* Remember – you will need to compile a Bibliography for your investigation, listing your sources of information, so keep track of where you are getting your information from. If you are sourcing information from websites, you need to copy and paste the entire URL as the source.
