I was thinking about having kids take apart an old computer, and using a guided handout or online document that contained pictures of the parts. I would have the kids label and define each part and then in groups re-build the computer. If it was a working computer, they can then turn it on and see if it works properly.This would be ideal, but I’m not sure if it would be feasible. I would have to see once I get back into my school building.
Also, I was thinking of having them change parts in a computer in order to see an effect. Maybe changing the graphics card and seeing how a video or image changes. I’m still running with these ideas. We’ll see once I actually get to, and do this lesson.
