A game to assess your students’ abilities to find books in the non-fiction section by the LibraryFox (c) 2013

Students divide into teams, have them select cards with Dewey numbers and race to the shelves to see who can find the correct call number first! It's a fun way to assess whether or not your students understand how to find books using the Dewey Decimal System! My students love it. This could be used with any grades learning about the DDS, but I primarily use it with my 4th and 5th grade students. Everything you need (minus the Non-Fiction section of your Library!) is in this file including blank cards that you can customize and use to have students search for subjects or numbers to suit YOUR collection.
I hope your students love it as much as mine do!
