Technology Connections for Grades 3-5 by Norma Heller

Each chapter includes an overview of the topic; objectives; detailed instructions; activities for reading, writing, and brainstorming; directions for practicing technology skills; library connections; suggested Web sites; and a bibliography. 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.
