Designed to demonstrate how a single picture book can be used as a preliminary tool to illustrate the growth and development of an idea, it further provides an opportunity to look at a variety of genres and how they can be located in the library media center by utilization of the Dewey decimal call number system.
Other materials utilized, in addition to books from the media center collection, included a basic map of the United States, a copy of "The Cat and the Fiddle" nursery rhyme, and two sets of index cards for the call number activity.
Each student was given a research card with a topic and call number and sent to find its location in the library media center.
At the conclusion of this session, students had participated in an activity that introduced them to books from several genres, provided an opportunity to locate materials using the Dewey decimal call number system, and helped to demonstrate the steps involved in researching and expanding a topic.
Next, I held up a card with the Dewey decimal call number 811 printed on it and reminded students that the call number is like an address (it tells us where to find a book).
After reading the stories to the group, a quick check of each book showed its call number to be a capital E and three letters.
We checked the call number label on this book and found that 398.
