Deschutes Public Library Online Resources
In the “Online Resources” section of the Deschutes Public Library website (www.deschuteslibrary.org/onlineresources), check out the databases in the Homework category! Use your library card (including Library Linx cards) to log in, or use them at a public library. Do a keyword search or browse the categories in these databases for magazine and journal articles covering your topic.
A database aimed at K-5 graders for student use.
World Book Encyclopedia
This database is a little more challenging than Kids InfoBits, but great for parents and young students working together.
CulutureGrams has concise, reliable, and up-to-date reports for the countries of the world, and for each of the United States, including maps.
Browse the tree books at the Deschutes Public Library or search the online catalog for your subject.
Some great books for this project include:
An easy game of matching continents and their names
State Game Stumper from PBS Kids
Match the states to the blank map!
A great classroom resource full of state and country map outlines
National Geographic Mapmaker Tool
Have fun customizing a National Geographic map.
Do you know the US states and capitals? Test yourself with these games!
Travel IQ Game
This will be very challenging for first grade students, but it’s fun!
