While the High School is away…the Middle Schoolers will play! This week the High Schoolers were away on their trips, which gave the 6th graders a chance to really get to the know the Matthews Library.
All this week, the 6th graders had their library orientation where they learned how to read a shelf, find some of our more unusually labeled books, arrange books according to the Dewey Decimal System, navigate databases, and evaluate websites for content, authority, bias, and design. Student then got to show off their website evaluation knowledge with a game of Friendly Feud.
Also in the library all week were Mrs. Eustace’s 8th graders. They were in to research for their Salem Witch projects, which will culminate in an Ignite Speech next week.
