KWON students in grades 2-6 are working hard to learn the different features in a nonfiction text and the various reference books available to them for research. Nonfiction text features include a table of contents, real photographs, diagrams, labels, keywords, maps, headings, and captions. Reference books include dictionaries, thesauri, atlases, encyclopedias, magazines, newspapers, digital information, and almanacs.
