During the months of September and October our grade 7 students attended Learning Commons Orientation.
During their 2-period visit, students listened to a presentation about general Learning Commons operations such as LC rules, printing privileges, borrowing privileges, upcoming events, reading clubs and Bullet Journal Club.
In addition they got to explore the Learning Commons and learn how and where to find resources through a Learning Commons Scavenger Hunt.
The scavenger hunt included 8 stations where students were asked to answer 25 questions about the Learning Commons. The questions asked students to search our library database, find books and online resources, provide information about clubs and special events, find information on the Learning Commons website, access digital resources available to the students, find books on the shelves, find call numbers for specific books, explain the LC layout and more.
Once they answered all of the questions, the students were expected to unscramble a secret message hidden between the answers. The winners were rewarded with a mini chocolate bar!
It was a very effective and engaging way for students to explore Sacred Heart Learning Commons and learn where to find what they need.
We hope to see them here often!
