Internet Research – Check your facts!

All About Explorers

http://www.allaboutexplorers.com/ is a great website to teach young people the importance of checking their facts when researching on the Internet. It contains biographies of a number of famous explorers, but very little of the information is true. It is aimed at primary aged pupils, but would be useful for all ages to see how unreliable information can be, even when presented on an official looking website. The site also contains a number of lesson plans and links to authentic sites.
