Amar & Akbar Meet Dewey

This game will teach your young patrons where to find books on different subjects in the library using the Dewey decimal system. Give your students each a copy of a guide to the Dewey decimal classification system so that they may reference it throughout the activity. The scenario is that two boys, Amar and Akbar, knocked over a cart of new books and the librarian expect them to help her organize them so that future readers can find them. Students will write down the order of the books in question as well as where they would fall in the Dewey decimal categorization system.
