The five skill areas include: (1) evaluating sources, discerning between fact and opinion, and understanding the differences between primary and secondary sources; (2) finding information through library skills and oral interviews; (3) classifying data using charts and graphs; (4) developing map skills; and (5) understanding time concepts.
