Week in Review: 6th Grade Library Orientation

It’s that time of the year when the high schoolers are on their trips and the library is quiet…except for when the 6th graders are in! Which happened to be every day this week since it was their library orientation.

Students spent the week learning how to search the library catalog for books and then finding those books on the shelf via scavenger hunt. They navigated the library’s databases and learned how to do basic searches. Students got to play ‘librarian’ and practice putting call numbers in order.

They also learned how to evaluate websites and drive their knowledge home by playing Friendly Feud, with a mustachioed Ms. Melinson hosting. Students went on a Wonder-themed webquest to learn more about Treacher Collins Syndrome, which they first learned about in English class while reading Wonder.
