I would like to start off the school year with basic Technology lessons to lead into research projects for writing. (I am a new 5th grade teacher this year...I have been teaching 2nd and 3rd grade for 10 years.) I am thinking that I would teach technology in this order: 1. Parts of the computer, hardware vs. software 2. Internet Safety, web searching resources 3. Microsoft Word I am not sure how much my students know but I don't think they got alot in 4th grade so I want to start fresh but not bore them. Does anyone have some good lesson plans, links, flipcharts, etc related to any of this? (I found some...but more on primary level.) Thanks!
