									                    Using Internet Sources at Home

World Book Student
  1. Go to the Averill Park home page: www.averillpark.k12.ny.us
  2. On the left side, click on “libraries,” and then “Middle School Library.”
  3. In the 3rd row of blue boxes, click “Internet General Reference Tools.”
  4. In the 1st row, click “Worldbook Online.”
  5. Click on the middle box that says World Book Student.
  6. At home you will need to login. The user name AND password are: apstudent
  7. Remember that World Book is your “C” source and does not require a page
     number. You should have the source info filled in on your source log under
     “C.”

Approved Websites
  1. Go to the Averill Park home page: www.averillpark.k12.ny.us
  2. On the left side, click on “libraries,” and then “Middle School Library.”
  3. In the 3rd row of blue boxes, click “Internet Subject Links.”
  4. Click on “English.”
  5. Scroll down until you see “Animal Research Websites.”
  6. Click on each site and try to search for your animal. Most sites have lists of
     animals that their sites feature, sometimes organized by the type of animal
     (mammal, bird, reptile, etc.).
  7. Remember, the first website you use is source “D.” If you take information
     from a 2nd website, it will be source “E,” etc. You should have the source info
     filled in on your source log. Most sites, except for Animal Diversity Web, don’t
     have an author listed.

Google Search
  1. Only after you’ve examined ALL of the approved sites can you do a Google
     search.
  2. Type in a key word or phrase from your keyword sheet.
  3. If you find a site that seems helpful, you need to fill in a website evaluation
     form.
  4. If you can answer most of the questions, you can use this site. Fill in the info
     for the site on your source log. It’ll be your source “D,” “E,” “F,” etc.
