 Lesson 1 – Finding relevant information



Learning objectives:

  1. Use the find on this page tool to speed up research.
  2. Understand how to select a suitable website from a search engine list.


Show pupils how to search for specific information on a webpage using the tools > edit > find on this page.
Pupils are to complete the quick worksheet activity to find on this page.

Task 1:

Get pupils to discuss what information they need when they go to the library. How do they search for a book? How do they select a book? e.g. title, author, blurb and size. Provide pupils with the mock google search engine pdf documents for the cross curricular subject you are studying. Ask pupils what similarities there is between choosing a book and choosing a website. 

Task 2:

Give pupils the differentiated question sheets which must be answered by choosing the appropriate website listed and using the skills from task 1 to find the information quickly.  When pupils have the answer they should click on the macro button and begin typing. As the pupil begins typing the gap and underline will disappear. This will enable you to print out the worksheets to review as a class and the gaps will still be there so pupils can write on the line.

Review what skills we have learnt this lesson and how they can help us?

Further study


We have identified the secondary school lessons listed below as potentially useful for supporting the primary curriculum:
  • Lesson 4 - searching the internet
  • Lesson 5 - would you trust it?
  • Lesson 6 - is that really your work?
How could you use these resources?
  • You could adapt the lesson focus and activities to suit your cross curricular need then teach the lessons yourself.
  • If you are within a 20 mile radius of Langley Grammar School you could visit us for a Digital Schoolhouse lesson (click here for more details).
  • You could work with your local secondary school to adapt the resources and ask them to deliver the lesson (at their school) to your pupils.
The Digital Schoolhouse encourages schools to adapt the year 7 assessment listed on the Secondary 'using the internet' page, by simplifying it and changing it to a topic of your choice.
