It’s research paper time at WHS. I know that freshman in Cultural Foundations have visited the Media Center looking for resources and the same questions always comes up. ”What is a primary source and how do I find them.”
Primary sources provide first-hand testimony or direct evidence concerning a topic under investigation. They are created by witnesses or recorders who experienced the events or conditions being documented. Often these sources are created at the time when the events or conditions are occurring, but primary sources can also include autobiographies, memoirs, and oral histories recorded later. Primary sources are characterized by their content, regardless of whether they are available in original format, in microfilm/microfiche, in digital format, or in published format.
Here is a great short video that Easy Bib has put together that lists 5 Awesome Primary Source websites.

It seemed like there was a lot of good information, even for the high school level. Here is the link, 20 Great Math Websites, be sure to check it out.
