Introduction to the Dewey Decimal System

Imagine a library scavenger hunt. What might searchers find in the section labeled "521"? What about in the "611's"? Class groups investigate the Dewey Decimal System of numbering nonfiction books in the library. Given a number, they examine the books in their section and then label the type of nonfiction found under each grouping based on its subject matter. Individuals also reverse the process and refile books based on its number. Extension activities are also included in the packet.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
