Lesson with search engines

 For a lesson on research I could have the students utilize different search engines. While many are only familiar with Google or Yahoo, there are so many more that are safer and more applicable to education.

 Traveler’s Rest State Park is always having guest come to present their knowledge. They offer everything from presentations of Native American Culture to an Archeologist teaching how to dig for dinosaurs. The students could research for an upcoming field trip to the park. Utilizing Google when researching such a public place would be best for the students. Google scholar would work well once we have the trip planned so students can be prepared with valid questions.

 It is always best to be prepared when you are going to a place or if someone is coming to present to you. The students will gain more from the experience and they will feel proud that they were prepared.
