Homework & Research Help for Kids
There are loads of resources to help you with your homework. Library databases have lots of useful information that’s not necessarily available through Google. Plus, you know you can trust this information. Many websites can also help you with your homework, but make sure you’re safe while surfing the Internet, that the websites you find are from reliable sources, and learn how to cite those sources.

Citing Sources: Writing a Bibliography
What’s a bibliography?It’s a list of all the books, articles, websites, interviews or movies that you used to create your project or report.
Why do I need a bibliography?It’s important to give credit to the people whose work you used for your report. And it gives you, your teacher and anyone else who reads your report a chance to refer to those sources for more information.
How do I write a bibliography?There are different ways you can do this and your teacher will tell you which they prefer (if they haven’t, just ask them).
