dewey decimal games

Division 2 (grades 6 and 7) has created some amazing interactive games to help the rest of our intermediate students review and understand the categories in the Dewey Decimal classification system for the library. The students worked in small groups to create different games - trivia, matching, card games, board games and complicated interactive games with multiple components. Other than the content focus of the Dewey system, a focus of the task was on procedural writing and writing clear, concise instructions that others would be able to follow.

This past Monday, divisions 1, 3, 4 and 5 all had a chance to play the games in the library.

Divisions 4 and 5 also listened to a new book called Bob the Alien Discovers the Dewey Decimal System which was a great review of Dewey before they played the games.

Who knew Dewey could be so much fun?
