Dewey in Our Library

In fifth grade we learned about how the Dewey Decimal System helps organize the nonfiction side of our library.

Students learned what each of the hundreds classified as a class. We then broke up into small groups of 2-3 students to examine one section closer. Students first looked at the books and the heading for each section. They then chose 5-6 books that really represented that section of our library and recorded the title of the book and call number on a note card. This week, students went back to the shelves, and photographed the books they had chosen. Next week, we will be learning how to edit our photos and upload them to Glogster (I thought I would get my 5th graders prepped for the big Glogster project they will do next year). Look for our work about Dewey in Our Library soon!
