Divided class into groups. I had 4 to 5 students per group.
At table was pencil, clipboard, checklist, piece of paper, first clue/book mark for each group and instruction sheet
Each group had a specific route, with different colored envelopes holding their clues. That way one group could not follow the other.
Students really enjoyed doing it.
One comment, “When you first learn this (meaning the Dewey Decimal) it seems so hard but once you start to use it, it makes sense. This was fun.”
Give small prize to winning team and small chocolate bars to rest
Recommended to groups to have different person of the group do the search at the computer for each clue.
