Hi Earl,

I have been a library/media specialist in a K-6 for several years. The
first 2 weeks I usually do a library map activity withgrades 5&6.
The media center map has 15 locations to find. I have sheet with the 15
locations listed. They have to go to each location and detremine what it
located ther, find it on the list and label it. I put them in pairs or
sometimes teams of 3-4. I also have different treasure hunt lists. Each
list has 9 items - 3 are looking up items in the card catalog(we're not
automated yet),other items are :locating a book from one of the non
fiction categories, naming 2 magazines and listing an atricle from each,
name a set of encyclopedias, name a video from the collection, etc. Each
team has a different list, but they are similar in what they have to
find. Hope this helps!
