(Video) "Bob the Alien Discovers the Dewey Decimal System" is an excellent resource for elementary students. It goes through what the different sections are in a way younger users can understand. This video covers the basics of the Dewey Decimal System and is appropriate for middle-school aged students. "The Dewey Decimal Rap" is a great overview
of the DDC. Its format will engage students
as well as entertain them. Elementary Schools

(Review) https://jeopardylabs.com/play/dewey-decimal-system6 Jeopardy Labs allows interaction between the teacher and students. After going over the basic information regarding the DDC, teachers can evaluate what students understand and what may need to be covered again. https://jeopardylabs.com/play/the-dewey2 This Jeopardy Labs game focuses on the number classifications of the DDC. This can be used as a review game once students have a thorough understanding of the system. http://library.thinkquest.org/5002/ Overview These interactive activities covers the following information: Dewey background, basic overview,
specific categories, quizzes and puzzles, and an ultimate challenge. This site shows the DDC applied to our society. It is a commercial web site for a motel located near the New York City Public Library. The floors of the motel are themed by Dewey Number. Students could research other ways the DDC is used outside of the library and present their findings. http://www.libraryhotel.com/ This research activity allows students to act as "SWAT" team members to reorganize the library. Students must create a handbook to explain the DDC in a logical way. http://www.longmeadow.k12.ma.us/ws/dewey/ http://lmnet.wikispaces.com/Dewey+Decimal+System Dewey Bingo would allow students to practice the DDC system in a fun way. A teacher/librarian could use blank dice and label them - one for 000-400 and one for 500-900, with a free space on each of them. http://lmnet.wikispaces.com/Dewey+Decimal+System A scavenger hunt would serve as an appropriate review for elementary students after studying the DDC. Each pair of students selects a card which gives a task to be completed by finding a book/books about the subject. The students have a copy of my Dewey Decimal for Kids to refer to. When they find the book(s), they raise their hand. The teacher/librarian can check off their success, and they select another task. The Word documents for the tasks and the Word version of my Dewey Decimal for kids are here: http://www.thirteen.org/edonline/lessons/library/b.html Students can research various libraries and the cataloging systems that are used. Students then have opportunities of various extension activities to show their research. This Prezi can be utilized by teachers and/or librarians. Many educators are unsure on how to approach the Dewey Decimal System with students and only rely on the librarians who may only have a short amount of time with students. The information provided could create a better knowledge of the DDC and can be taught in the library and in the classroom. Each section is geared towards either elementary students, middle school students, or high school students. There are videos, games/activity, research projects, and a review to assist students in their learning of the Dewey Decimal System. Each slide contains a basic overview of the the video, game/activity, research project, and review, along with a link to access the complete information. The Common Core Essential Standards for Information and Technology are also listed. http://www.quia.com/jg/7265.html These Quia activities will allow students to practice their DDC skills and have a better understanding of the system as a whole. 5.SI.1.1, 5.SI.1.2, 5.SI.1.3
