Computer Science Fundamentals Curriculum from Code.org Added to Open Space

Author // Matt Yauk Wednesday, 01 June 2022

The Computer Science Fundamentals curriculum from Code.org is now available on Open Space. Each of the 97 lesson plans for grades K-5 feature interactive activities and videos for students that use easy-to-understand language and fun, familiar characters like Angry Birds or Frozen to teach programming and computer science.

For teachers and parents, the lesson plans include slide decks (via Google Docs), teaching guides with discussion questions, and alignment to national CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards. The Code.org platform allows students, teachers, and parents to track progress with learning, while the lesson plans also include “unplugged” activities for learning computer science concepts without a computer.
