Bird Migration Activity

You are writing an informative paper about bird migration.
Your friend shared a TikTok video with you about bird migration, and this got you thinking. You looked on the internet and found two more sources that talk about birds and how they migrate.


Instructions: Using your Source Evaluation Checklist, look at the three (3) sources to determine if they are 'good' sources to use for your paper. 


Ask Yourself:

  1. Is the information good and reliable?
  2. Will it fit into my topic?
