April 8-14 is National Library week this year! This week, Education World provides five lessons that focus on library skills.

Take advantage of these free activities to help your readers excel in the library: 

  • Mapping the Library – Compare your library with another library and create a map. (Grades Pre-K-5)
  • Huey and Louie Meet Dewey – Using the Dewey decimal classification system, organize a list of books. (Grades 3-8)
  • Save the Library – Write an essay to help save the library from projected budget cuts. (Grades 3-8)
  • Alphabetize for a Reason – Organize information by using the alphabet. (Grades K-5)
  • Library Scavenger Hunt – Locate resources within the library and use online resources to answer research questions. (Grades 6-12)

Education World is a massive and amazing website for educators – with all kinds of internet-based lesson plans and activities themed around specific subjects and holidays. Just go to the site, type a topic into the search engine, and you will be rewarded with many links to websites that provide information, resources, lessons, curriculum, activities – everything your teaching heart could desire. We’ve featured pages within the Ed World site before. You can create a complete unit study with the resources provided at the site, or just try a few of the suggested activities.

This ad-supported website does a great job of making free, internet-based curriculum and educational resources available to teachers and parent-educators and National Library Week is just one of many thousands of topics offered at the site. Because the site is so large and because web addresses change so quickly you will occasionally find dead links but overall it is well-maintained. Bookmark it – you’ll want to return here often.
