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 4: Fill in the Gaps

Do you have enough information in each of the five categories?

  • Art
  • Handicrafts
  • History
  • Parties/Festivals
  • Food

If not, search by your city AND the missing category. (i.e. type “Carcassone festivals” into the search bar)

Step 5: Check your bibliography

  • AND a citation for each image.
