Atlas Dictionary Thesaurus Encyclopedia Why do we use encyclopedias? An encyclopedia is used when someone wants to find information about a person, place, or thing. You may want to find out
information about George Washington. You can learn about him from reading information in an encyclopedia. Atlas An atlas is a map. If you want to find a specific place, street, road, city, or state.
Many people use an atlas when they are going on vacation or traveling to another place. Dictionary We use a dictionary to look up words. You will find the meaning of words in a dictionary.
For example, when you do not know the meaning of a word in a story. You may use a dictionary to look up the meaning of the word. Thesaurus
In a thesaurus, you will find synonyms for words. First, you look up the word in the thesaurus. Next to the word you will find a list of words that mean the same things as the word you looked up. Like wonderful great, magnificent, excellent,
terrific, cool, and fantastic Also in a thesaurus you will find an antonym for the word. Like horrible or awful would be an antonym for wonderful. Do you know? For the next couple of slides I will describe a situation. You must decide what type of reference material would be used in this
situation. Do you know what reference material to use? Challenge Question One My teacher has assigned a report on the country of Mexico. I need to find information on when the
