All research begins with a question.  Many times your teacher will give you a list of things that they want you to find out and then you can add your own questions to that list. 

In the primary grades, we use these four sources to find the answers to our questions. 

Although we are not quite ready to write a formal bibliography, the students should be able to tell you where they found their information.
