Learning Objective

Students will be able to gather the information they’ve learned from provided sources to answer questions about a topic.


Have students recall a book they enjoyed. What happened in the story? What is their favorite part? Explain that you can recall information to answer questions. Look at the questions on the board and ask what students already know about the topics.


Show students how they can use sources to answer questions. First, they should think about the questions and recall any information they might be able to recall. Then look at the source which can be a book, website, or video. Look out for any information that can help answer the questions. Next, read the cake recipe presented on the board.

Students read the question then fill in the graphic organizer. They will list what they already know about this topic, one fact they’ve learned and where they learned that fact. Feel free to change the question in this lesson!
