Step 10:  Sharing Your Work

The final step is to share your work with the world. How can you use the information you’ve researched and written to help people prevent pests from impacting their lives?

Put Your Paper in Final Form

A research paper is best presented in a specific format. Your paper should have:

  • Title page
  • Introduction (step 8)
  • Paragraphs with topic sentences (step 9)
  • Conclusion (step 9)
  • Bibliography (that’s next)

Make a Bibliography

Don’t forget to give credit where credit is due. Get one last page of paper and write down each source you’ve used. You should then list all your sources, as well as where and when you got them. That’s called a citation.

Follow these steps:

  • Put quotation marks around the entry's title: "European Hornet". Then put a period.
  • List the website's URL address.
  • Finally, write down the date you accessed the site.

Here's an example:

"European Hornet". October 15, 2008


You’re done with your paper! All of that hard work shouldn’t just sit on a shelf or in your backpack! Figure out how you might share the information with the world. Consider your potential audience and your purpose. Sometimes a book is the best, but other times a simple poster or blog post will work.

It all depends on these factors:

  • Do you want to provide in-depth information or just one or two important ideas?
  • How old is your audience?
  • How much time do they have to learn your information?
  • Where is your audience located? What is the best way to reach them?
