Plan the Project Know your subject; What are you going to research? Ask yourself, what do you already know about the subject? Identify what you need to find out about your subject.
Search for Information Here is a list of resources you can use to gather information about your subject: School and public library books Encyclopedias The Internet Magazines Dictionaries *Make sure that you are searching online safely
