This week, MBS Head Librarian Erinn Salge helped Jackie Forte’s 6th Grade English students get better acquainted with the Anderson Library by sending them on a scavenger hunt.
After getting a basic orientation of the library from Mrs. Salge, the students were divided into teams and raced each other to find a variety of library resources by answering questions on an app called GooseChase. Some clues led them to biographies and memoirs, others led them to dictionaries, mysteries, or U.S. history. After finding the correct answer, students had to take a selfie with the resource.
“Basically, the point was to get them used to being in the library, using the catalog to look up and locate books, and access the databases for the first time,” said Mrs. Salge, who awarded candy to the students after they completed their hunt.
