In the Classroom

Create word clouds for each Dewey Decimal category using any number of free online word cloud creators. WordArt, reviewed here, includes tools for customizing colors, fonts, and shapes. Ask students to create a WordArt creation for each classification, then print and display as a reminder for students to use when browsing for library materials. Challenge students to "show what they know" by playing online quizzes. Baamboozle, reviewed here, is an easy to use quiz tool for team play. Search Baamboozle for games that already provide practice on the Dewey Decimal system or create your own.
