Mouse Skills Choice Board 🖱🐭
Help students develop their mouse skills using fun online activities that range from single-click, click and drag, double-click, and more!
While many children use technology from an early age, it more often involves touch screens and scrolling and less frequently involves a traditional mouse. In my classroom experience over the past two decades, students are coming in each year with less experience and exposure to using a computer mouse, as that oftentimes is not used with the type of devices they use at home.
However, a mouse is used for school related computer programs, online testing sites, and project creation in docs and slides. The ability to use a mouse is important, requires practice, and various mouse skills need to be taught and learned. In this Choice Board, I have included a variety of sites that help young learners practice fine motor mouse manipulation skills using engaging activities.
The Choice Board offers options for being assigned to students where they can show their work on the second slide using the Print Screen button. This option would be assigned through an LMS such as Google Classroom. Another option is to share as a Published link by making a copy of the final slide, then using the File > Publish to Web option for that slide and sharing only that link with students.
I hope that you and your students enjoy this 🖱🐭Mouse Skills Choice Board! You may also want to check out my 🎃Fall Choice Board here to make a copy of it as well.
