Step 1: Explore our excellent eBooks!
Go to Hillview’s Gale Virtual Reference Library. Madame Kingsley has the password if you don’t remember from Social Studies research.
- There are two travel books on France, two on Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and one on Languedoc-Roussillon, and one French cook book.
- Gather info on your region in general.
- Search for your city in the France books and the book(s) on your region.
- Try to take notes on your 5 categories.
- If your city is not featured in any of the 5 books, go to step 2.
- Remember your ABCs of website evaluation. (add link)
- Use noodletools to create your bib.
Step 2: Explore the web for basic info
Explore these links (or even Wikipedia!) to get an idea of what is special about your city. Make a note of any terms to look up separately (famous artists, sights, food specialties, etc).

Step 3: Search the web for your city
Run a google search on your city. Maybe you’ll luck out and find some great sites! Take notes.
Step 4: Fill in the Gaps
Do you have enough information in each of the five categories?
If not, search by your city AND the missing category. (i.e. type “Carcassone festivals” into the search bar)
Step 5: Check your bibliography
- Make sure you have a bibliography citation for every note
- AND a citation for each image.
