INFOhio Blizzard Bags - Grades K-3: Evaluating Information

Students follow the six dimensions of inquiry as they read, investigate and complete the activities. Ohio's learning standards are integrated into the activities.


Now that you have located, read, and watched information about snow and snow crystals, how do you decide what are the best sources and how to organize your facts and notes?

  1. Draw a snowman like the ones in the picture above. Look at the information you learned on your KWL chart. Fill up your snowman with words from your KWL chart that describe snow and snowmen. (K-2)  (30-60 minutes)
  2. Use an online graphic organizer like "Tic-Tac-Toe Notes" to record the facts that you discovered about snow. Or you can use the Notetaking Template (in Templates below). (2-3) (30-60 minutes)
  3. Tell your teacher where you found information about snow and related topics. This is called a "citation." Many of the INFOhio resources include a link at the side or bottom of the source to help you with your citations. Or you can use the Citation Template (in Templates below) to record the information, including the author, title of the article, name of the database, web address, and date you used the source. (2-3) (30-60 minutes)
