In the Classroom

Include this video along with your other activities when teaching about the Dewey Decimal System. This YouTube video was created using Powtoon, reviewed here, an easy to use video creation tool. Challenge students or groups of students to create their own explanation video of the creation of the Dewey Decimal System and how to use it to find information in the library. Extend learning further by asking students to create monthly podcasts using Buzzsprout, reviewed here, to share additional information about non-fiction materials in the library. For example, take a category each month and have your students share information about what to find in the category along with some suggested books to use for school projects or personal reading.
