5th Grade Technology Lessons and Activities


5th grade technology lesson plans and activities for the entire school year that will make a great supplement to your technology curriculum. These lesson plans and activities will save you so much time coming up with what to do during your computer lab time. Ideal for a technology teacher or a 5th grade teacher with mandatory lab time. All of the work is done for you!

We want to think of our 5th grade students as really grown up when it comes to technology, but they do still have a lot to learn. Sure, they basically came out of the womb holding a device, but that doesn't mean they know how to use them responsibly or to learn anything. I put a focus on internet safety with a long term project, and then also have them create things with technology that pull in the other subject areas. The end result is some amazing learning!

So, I created these 5th Grade Technology Lessons and Activities for the entire school year that will make a great supplement to your technology curriculum. These lesson plans and activities will save you so much time coming up with what to do during your computer lab time. They are ideal for a technology teacher or a fifth grade teacher with mandatory lab time. All of the work is done for you!

Question: How does student access work?

Answer: With your purchase you get one class account that all students use to access the lesson pages. Think of this website like a textbook but digital. The username and password’s purpose is to give students access to the textbook. Then from there you (the teacher) still facilitate student progress by letting them know which lesson page to go to and you’ll still collect their finished assignments for assessment. 

Question: What platform will the students be using? Are they done in google drive? Like an interactive notebook?

 Answer: All of the digital content is housed on this website. The lesson plans and rationale pages are for the teacher (and administrators, right?) as PowerPoint files, and the website is set up to just click and go for the students to complete the activities. Think of the PPT files like the teacher manual and the website like the student workbook (but digital). Visit it ahead of time at k5technologycurriculum.com to get an idea how it works. You can find several free pages on the Samples dropdown menu. If/when you purchase access, you will create a class username and password to access the grade level pages included for your purchase.

Question: Do these include Google Apps or MS Office?

Answer: Both! Starting in 1st grade there are lessons to teach excel/sheets, word/docs, and PPT/slides.

You can pick and choose which lessons to do with your students. If you have access to Google Apps but not to MS Office, just skip the MS Office lessons and vice versa. 

Question: Can I attach the lessons to Google Classroom?

Answer: No, these lessons do not integrate with Google Classroom in that way. Some teacher will choose to use Google Classroom as a way to collect student assignments in order to grade them, but students will still need to go to the website to complete the lesson. 

Question: Do I need to buy anything additional software for my students to use this curriculum?

Answer: No! Everything you need is included. There are optional outside subscriptions for some activities. If you want to use the lessons for digital passport from common sense media (4th grade) then you will need to make a free teacher account. There are optional “early finisher” activities like Moby Max and discovery education that could be used if you have an account but there are tons of other options if you don’t.

Question: Do I have to buy all of the grade levels or can I just buy the one(s) I need?

Answer: Individual grade levels can be purchased and if you decide you need more, it is easy to add additional grade levels at any time. Scroll down to see the purchase options.

4th Grade Technology Lessons and Activities


4th grade technology lesson plans and activities for the entire school year that will make a great supplement to your technology curriculum. These lesson plans and activities will save you so much time coming up with what to do during your computer lab time. Ideal for a technology teacher or a 4th grade teacher with mandatory lab time. All of the work is done for you!

4th graders are a breath of fresh air! In my lab we spend most of the year learning some solid online research skills. We also do units for Internet Safety and Coding, which my students always enjoy. Just so they don't lose their skills, we also practice presentation and spreadsheet software along the way. Every year I partner with the 4th grade teachers to plan a research project for after our unit on online research. We have even teamed up with the media specialist in the past. This has to be my favorite part of the year because there is such a purpose to our time together and the final product is something they can be really proud of. Ok, enough of my sappiness :-)

So, I created these 4th Grade Technology Lessons and Activities for the entire school year that will make a great supplement to your technology curriculum. These lesson plans and activities will save you so much time coming up with what to do during your computer lab time. They are ideal for a technology teacher or a fourth grade teacher with mandatory lab time. All of the work is done for you!
