prefixes and dictionaries

On Monday, we had a lesson on deconstructing words that have prefixes and finding their definition in a dictionary. It was amazing to me (an now on reflection no so amazing) that children really had no concept of using a dictionary. It's very simple to find definitions of words on wikipedia, but using a dictionary is a valuable skill to refine.
