Shopping with the Dewey Decimal System

Shopping with the Dewey Decimal System

Let's go shopping for School Librarian Day! The Dewey Decimal system is a way to categorize books, just like a grocery store categorizes food. Introduce your students to the Dewey Decimal system using this hands-on activity. Students will organize grocery store items into related groups. This process will then be compared to the organization of books using the Dewey Decimal System. Students will end the lesson by organizing a selection of books in a library media center according to the Dewey Decimal Classification System.
