The activities, presented on reproducible sheets, help students develop problem-solving and research skills. All have interchangeable components, so they can be adapted to a variety of technologies. This is a complete and vital guide for introducing younger students to technology. Grades 3-5.


In this handy guide, students are introduced to a variety of technological resources that will increase their critical thinking and information gathering skills. -Reviews from Parent Council
