PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Diving into Dewey! Explore the Nonfiction Section of the Library!

This is a simple but effective way to introduce your students to the nonfiction (or “Dewey”) section of your library media center. No technology needed, except for a pencil! ;-)

I’ve included two different versions of this activity with directions for how to assemble each version. Please download the PREVIEW so you can see a sample. You pick the version that works best for you and your students, or use both at different grade levels!

I have used this activity with my students and have observed firsthand how excited they get about the nonfiction books they find in sections they might normally not go to when it’s time for book checkout. “May we check out the books we found for this project?” is often asked during class time and I happily say “OF COURSE!” I also hear many students saying to their friends, “I didn’t know the library had THESE kinds of books!”

This activity is a great tie-in when classroom teachers are focusing on informational text during their reading units!
