A Class Picnic (Grade 2) introduces students to basic computer concepts and applications with fun and effective grade-level-appropriate hands-on activities. Each book centers on a fun, grade-appropriate theme, such as a class picnic or a cross-country trip, and covers topics such as: computer basics, word processing, drawing and graphics, databases, and spreadsheets applied to each theme. Exercises can be completed with or without a computer and teach about all types of computers and common software applications. These Student Editions of We Can Use the Computer are available for grades 1-6 along with the corresponding Teacher's Edition. See below for additional recommendations.
