When I was tasked with replacing a departing technology instructor with no notice, I needed solutions, so I created my own! Using dynamic tools from around the internet for a variety of interests to be met in interactive activities. This short computer science course resource took me a month to create and guided students through 10 weeks (or longer if you choose to extend and expand on them.) All you need is an internet connection. (Google Docs is a plus)
Students will work with art, graphic design, coding, gaming, and more and these pages are ready to print and distribute, or to give digital access to students for completion. These tools require no extra cost, or money, but it does help if they have Google accounts for creating documents or signing up for digital services. Its a great variety of technological skills and experiences to interest many different student areas of interests.
Students will learn (hands-on) a lot about many subjects while gaining valuable skills to learn in computer science and across various curriculum. This unit plan of computer science also teaches the importance of organization, planning, and good study skills with tools like google Calendar, EdPuzzle, Code.org, and more! Ready to print!
Suggestion - have each student start a Powerpoint or Google Slides and put screenshots or what they learned on a slide for each week as a unit project! These are ready to print and distribute, or you can edit/adjust to your liking.

Wow! This would be EXCELLENT for anyone! I am especially thinking for maternity leave cover or anyone who will be new to teaching Computer classes (let's face it, the fall of 2020 is a big unknown! It's great to have resources like this available!!)
I love this--especially the project to make a stop-motion movie using Google Slides--what a creative idea!
I loved the real life connections in your lessons. Plus they match with my curricuum. Thank you!
This was a great resource for me to use with my home schooling grandchildren! I am not the most tech savvy person, so the easy to use instructions were extremely helpful! Thank you!
These lessons are perfect! I love the real-world connections and that you provided samples of completed assignments! Thank you!
The instructions were very easy to follow. The information was presented in a clear and logical way.
A variety of lessons that students would really enjoy!
