Computer Awareness Activities and Computer Curriculum K-5.
Meyers, Judith K.
The first of two documents combined here provides a list of 105 computer awareness activities designed for use by classroom teachers in conjunction with the regular curricula. Activities appropriate for all grades are presented; wherever possible, the activities are described in their simplest forms, with the intention that they can be made more complex and sophisticated for the older student. The second document, a detailed computer curriculum, provides plans for 12 lessons on computer awareness for elementary school children. The first two lessons are aimed at primary students and cover how to operate the computer in learning resources centers. Five lessons for the fourth grade and five for the fifth grade provide more detail on the parts of the computer, the functions of a computer, simple computer programs, and computer careers. The lessons are designed to be taught by media specialists, and most activities can be conducted in learning resource centers. Specific instructional materials accompanying the curriculum guide include worksheets, quizzes and answer keys, transparencies, and flashcards on vocabulary and hardware and software. (LMM)
