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.

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. Almanac An almanac is published yearly. An almanac is filled with facts,

figures and information on thousands of topics. Periodicals Periodicals are published works that appear in a new edition on a regular schedule. The most familiar examples are the newspaper, often published

daily, or weekly; or the magazine, typically published weekly, monthly or as a quarterly. Newspapers A newspaper has many different sections and contains useful information. The sections might be written to
