Year 6 Search Engines and Browsers

Year 6 were amazed by the increase in number of websites since Yahoo first began in 1994. Using search engines and browsers are things they take for granted. They were asked to write instructions on how to search to find out Gandhi’s date of birth. They swapped books with a friend who followed their instructions to find out the answer. After that, they searched for rugby, sale and boot to discover what the internet would throw up. When I told them I wanted to find out about the three places-Rugby, Sale and Boot- in Britain, it lead to a discussion on why we need to narrow or refine our searches when using a search engine.
