In 6th Grade students are getting more familiar with the Dewey Decimal System. These past few weeks, we learned about Melville Dewey. Ten, students were assigned a section of nonfiction to examine (000s, 100s, 200s... ). In small groups students then looked at the books in our library along with the main subject heading. They then collaborated to use Creative Commons to find images that represented their Dewey Section and were licensed for free use.
Students are currently working on adding these images to iMovies. We are going to add appropriate captions and music to make our own Dewey movies which we will publish.
