When it comes to searching online for information, it is sometimes hard to know where to begin.  The following are some fee-based databases that students have access to from both school and home.   These databases are great places to begin research because the reading level is more appropriate for elementary age students and the information included is reliable.

In order to use these sites, you need to enter a username and password.  Please email Ms. Boggs or see the Sandymount Newsletter for the usernames and passwords.
