[FROM THE TEXT]
Who decided that people need to go to school? What does a manatee eat? How do computers work? Questions like these probably run through your mind all the time. You may begin finding answers to the questions “Who?” “What?” “When?” “Where?” “Why?” and “How?” by doing research. Look around and you will find many sources of informative writing to help you answer your questions: textbooks, newspapers, and other media sources such as the Internet and documentaries. When you have a question about a particular topic, look for informative books or articles to help you find the answer.
