What do kids need to know before they search?

Research Terminology

It is our responsibility, as teachers, to ensure that research questions are presented in a format that is easily understood by children.  Students in the early years of school are usually confident in their own abilities, or may be too timid to admit when they cannot understand what a question is asking. Because of this, they may waste valuable research time pursuing the wrong information.  To avoid this happening a concerted effort should be made to progressively introduce research vocabulary in the primary school years.

With this in mind we have created a series of posters, with age appropriate terminology, to assist teachers in delivering content and act as an anchor chart to be displayed in the classroom.    The words displayed on the posters have been taken directly from each Year Level in the Australian Curriculum.
