This week grade 2 students helped out the librarians by choosing the classroom books for their new inquiry unit on celebrations.

They decided that both Destiny Quest and the DDC (Dewey Decimal Classification) would help them find the non-fiction books they needed.  Then they brainstormed search terms  that would provide a wide variety of books about many kinds of celebrations.  Some students used the DDC to  locate the number assigned to “holiday” books.  Other students used Destiny Quest and found books about Eid-ul-Fitr, masks, Chinese New Year treats, festivals, parades, parties and lots more! 

Great job Grade 2!
