Computer Science Unplugged

I am loving this idea!  It’s hard to teach those abstract Computer Science ideas – binary numbers, algorithms, procedures.  And actually using a computer, where all these processes are invisible, doesn’t help.  Well, now there’s Computer Science Unplugged, where students learn about computer science concepts while NOT on a computer.  Using post-it notes, string, crayons, cards and a host of other toys, kids learn the real concepts behind computer science.  The twelve most-popular activities are available online for free and there’s a teacher’s manual you can download.  Great for Upper Elementary through High School and FREE!
