Dewey Decimal doesn’t have to be boring! We’re making it fun in the media center this week with several activities to review the Dewey Decimal and OPAC systems in our library in order to become more independent researchers:
Third Grade completed an OPAC Hunt on books in our library and are taking off with using the OPAC system on their own. They visited several sites on the Dewey Decimal System; the Dewey Rap was definitely the most popular!
Fourth Grade is working on creating a Dewey Decimal presentation using Google Presentation in Google Apps. They are working in groups to create a slide for each section of the Dewey Decimal System and then we will combine the slides to create one teaching tool for the younger grades. I will post these projects when they are complete.
