Researching? Start Here First...

  • For the best searches (and the easiest to cite), start with the ELM databases. You can also find links to several of these at: www.elm4you.org

    These sites search magazines, journals, newspapers, primary sources, images, video and more for middle and high school students. You can save, email, and print from all of these, but you must cite your sources or you will be plagiarizing
