Last week to help the fourth and fifth graders understand the Dewey Decimal system a bit better, I created a PowerPoint and a QR code scavenger hunt. You can get a copy of the PowerPoint I used by clicking here or on the picture above.
After I went over each of the Dewey sections, students broke into groups and followed clues to QR codes.
They used the QR code app i-nigma to scan the codes to see if they were correct and then they read their next clue.
You might remember from this post last year, that I taught the Dewey Body Buddy to 2nd grade last year to help them remember the different sections. I reviewed that lesson with 3rd grade this year and also taught it to 2nd grade. You can get a free copy of the PowerPoint I used by clicking here or on the picture above.
They each took home a Dewey Body Buddy study sheet that they completed during the lesson as well as a bookmark to help them remember the sections. If you'd like a copy of this lesson, you can click here or on the picture above.
How do you teach the Dewey Decimal System or have you ditched Dewey altogether?
