The same search in 3 different Google geographic locations. Very little is relevant for a primary school student searching for information on tigers. Can you see how Google changes its results to suit your country? Even the adverts and "searches related to" (at the bottom of the page) are different. There are so many results. How can you get fewer, better results? Take a look here.....
The library provides many alternatives to using Google. (see this page). Some of these will provide you with relevant, age appropriate information, so we encourage you to try using these for your research, however, we know that for many people, Google will be a good starting point for their research, and/or may be the only place that they look for information.
How long does my teacher expect me to work on this topic?
What do I want/need to find out? Develop a question
What keywords will I use in a search? Write them down, it will save you time later.
What is a reasonable amount of time to spend looking for information?
Where will I look for this information?
What do I need to produce at the end and how long will that take me?
example : iMovie, Keynote, Poster, essay, poem, drawing
REMEMBER - Producing the end product will probably take longer than the research, if you want to hand in quality work.
