Cavett Fifth Graders Learn to Do Research

April 26, 2007 by pjorgensen
- and Have Fun!
Fifth graders from Cavett Elementary visiting Bennett Martin Public Library "I had a great time at the library."

"I enjoyed looking up events that happened on my birthday."

"I learned more on the 9-11 tragedy and on Husker football."

Calvin Rife brought his fifth grade class from Cavett Elementary to the Periodicals Room again this year, and they had some first-hand experiences using several different new ways to find information - old and new magazines in print, newspapers on microfilm, Reader's Guide, and computer databases. They looked at Yank, a World War II armed services newspaper; Life Magazine, and Seventeen.

They sprawled on the floor, stood at counters, sat at tables. They clustered around the microfilm readers, looking at newspapers published the day they were born (and a couple found their birth announcements! - way cool!).

They searched the New York Times database and printed out articles of interest. They learned that librarians don't say "Shhhhhh!", but are helpful and friendly.

They had a good experience, and so did the librarians. We look forward to them coming back.

Fifth graders from Cavett Elementary visiting Bennett Martin Public Library "I can't wait to go back!"
