Keys on a Keyboard

Begin developing basic computer and typing skills early on with your youngsters and introduce them to the keys on a keyboard with this simple lesson! Learners begin by identifying the appropriate key (i.e. enter, shift, space bar, etc.) on a handout, discussing what it is used for, and then shading in that key on the worksheet with a specific color. Tip: Use a projector to show what happens when each key is pressed!

Lesson Planet has helped me find many ideas for supplementing the curriculum that is provided to me by my school district. I have found many creative, hands-on activities that make my science curriculum "pop".
