News From the Library–Nov. 29

Keyword Searching Scavenger Hunt

It was a short week in the Library due to the Thanksgiving holidays.  Kindergarteners heard One is a Feast for Me by Judy Cox,  Second graders heard Turkey Surpise by Peggy Archer, Fifth graders played Jeopardy, and Sixth graders had a chance to practice keyword searching skills.

After highlighting key words in 20 random questions, sixth graders set about on a “scavenger hunt” to find answers using google.  This was good practice in making searches more specific and therefore yielding more accurate results.  Just one more way to hone our research skills.

Hope all had a Happy Thanksgiving!
