I started by telling them a silly story about Mr Dewey, his wife, and their big house which was full of books. obviously when his wife couldn't find her favourite cookery book she set him the task of sorting all the books out to make it easier to find what you want.
The story explains how he organised all of knowledge into the 10 main subject areas and then gave them subject numbers. The students are then given a floor plan of his house and have to label each room with the main subject area, the main Dewey Shelf number and then run around the MRC shelves to find each subject area, note the colour on the spine labels and then finally colour in their floor plan.
