Reference Resources Workshop

During the Book Month teacher Ina, our librarian and Croatian teacher organized a lesson where she showed us types of reference resources. We learned about:

  • Atlas - used to search for places and countries
  • Encyclopedias - explain a broad range of subjects in an alphabetical order
  • Dictionaries - used to find the definition and meaning of words in a given language
  • Thesauruses - dictionaries of synonyms and antonyms.

Teacher Ina also showed us some kid friendly search engines, such as:, Awesome Library, Yahoo Kids, Ask Kids and tons more!

This lesson has been a valuable learning experience for us, and we will definitely use what we have learned from this useful lesson.
