The Dewey Decimal Classification System

I stumbled upon this website today and plan to use it for teaching the Dewey Decimal System: Do We Really Know Dewey. It was put together by 6th grade students. There is a funny story about Melvil Dewey meeting aliens that actually helps children remember the classifications of the Dewey Decimal System, as well as puzzles, tests, and so on. Check it out.
