A-Z: Lessons for the Elementary Computer Lab

Teach students about using keywords


Stress importance that not all websites are credible or true


Students should click on several websites to help collect information

Google and Research

Students are going to use Google and Bing when they are at home

Skills: creating a product using a Web 2.0 tool, saving files, navigating between programs, inserting pictures from a file, resizing pictures, printing, creating an avatar to use online (cyber safety)

Then the students must use a stamp of the gingerbread boy in the Tuxpaint program and disguise him so that the fox won’t eat him.

PPT, Pub and Excel Boot camp

I provide all the information so that the students don’t waste any time researching. The students can focus on putting that information into the Microsoft program.

Students will be in groups of 3. One will make a chart in Excel, one will make a PowerPoint and one will make a poster in Publisher.

The more times you repeat a word, the bigger Wordle will make it

A “~” must be between two words
that need to stay together

This is a word cloud.
The theme of this word cloud is things to do during the summer
