4th Grade World Book Scavenger Hunt

This week in the RBE Library, all RBE students will be exploring and learning about how to use the World Book Online.

Most students will be using the World Book to research a topic they have already chosen. However, 4th grade is not in the midst of research, so we are going to use one of the World Book Online Scavenger hunts!

In this scavenger hunt, students will learn about environmental pollution. Students can and should use the bookmarks we will send home in Thursday folders this week to access the World Book Online from home using our Borchardt username and password. Anytime students are at school, they can use the search boxes on the library website from any computer on campus to access the World Book Online.

4th grade, use the scavenger hunt below to learn how to use the World Book Online. Answer the six questions under the Find It! section as a comment below!
