Place them inside another circle (labeled "____ Library") if they apply to that library, but not to your school library.
Place them in the middle section of the diagram (where two circles intersect) if they apply to both your school library and another library you visited.
When you have finished, ask students to name any other features of either library and add them to the diagram.
1. Now have students close their eyes and think about the layout of your school library. Have them get a clear mental picture of it.
2. On a large sheet of paper, start a drawing of a map and give the students a point of reference such as the front door. Now give each student their own map drawing supplies (paper and markers) and have them start with the front door as a visualization point.
3. Have the students label each section of the library map. (More capable students might create individual or group maps.)
4. When they have completed the maps, on additional paper have students write a description of each part of the map "the door is at the front of the library, near the water fountain…."
5. Put the additional information on the map and display it.
6. Now have the students do their own personalized maps for hallway display.
Introduce this activity just before open house or another event at your school, and have parents use the student-created guide to navigate the library! Older students and accomplished writers can supplement the map with an entire handbook of information about the library.
Extension activity: Humor: What you learn with pleasure you never forget! Poke fun at books, reading, and the library with the Library Jokes handout. Then put your young comedians to work on their own library humor!
This lesson is designed as a group activity that can be evaluated by the teacher through observation.
