Product Description
Teach your kids the layout of the library with this engaging unit. Students become library detectives, practice their library skills with "cases", take "checkpoint" tests, and ultimately earn a library license. If your library is automated, the library license can be barcoded and used to check out books. Fun for all!!

The library access skills covered are ...
* Books are divided into nonfiction, easy fiction, and chapter books.
* The "upstairs" of a call number lets us know where that book is found.
* The "downstairs" of a call number depicts the author.
* The nonfiction side of the library is organized by the Dewey Decimal System.

The product includes ...
* A Powerpoint Presentation to help you introduce the unit
* A file outlining the "how to" of the presentation and all of the lessons
* Three exploratory detective "cases"
* Four "checkpoints" assessing student understanding
* A printable "call number" sort activity
* Library licenses {Editable}

Not all libraries are created equal, so most of the printable files will come in both a secure PDF file and an editable Word file.

Feel free to download the Preview for a copy of the Unit Outline and Notes. This will explain the unit further and show you pictures of the assessments.
