The primary computing curriculum has the following statement in it:
use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content
This resource has example video, lesson plans, labels for laminating and IWB notebook files for primary teachers to use in their own classrooms.
It focuses on giving the children an understanding of what the internet is and then teaches them how search engines work using an unplugged and kinaesthetic approach. The final session where we modeled the operation of a search engine is featured in the video.
I hope you find what I did with my Year 3 class useful.
Duration: 3 or 4 sessions/lessons
Teaches: search technologies
