This is the curriculum I used for my arduino class to teach students about programmable circuit boards and coding them.
You will get a 5 questions for each lesson that ask students about the components, the build and the code. Each lesson also has a challenge that gets your students to think outside the box to try to make the build better or different is someway. This is a great way to expand students creativity. Great for TAG students, Makerspace activities or home-school students.

What is arduino?
Arduino is an open-source hardware and software company, project and user community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control objects in the physical and digital world.
What will you need?
You will need a kit for each student. We used CTE money to purchase a class set here for $35 each https://www.amazon.com/ELEGOO-Project-Starter-Tutorial-Arduino/dp/B01D8KOZF4
This is the best price I have found for a kit with so many components. You can use different arduino kits but you may have to buy components to do all the lessons are skip those lessons.
You will also need a computer PC or Mac for each student. If you have Chromebooks a new plug in is available called codebender that will allow you to use Chromebooks with arduinos. https://www.sparkfun.com/news/1803
I like to use a doc cam to model the builds but it is not necessary.
These lessons are built around the elegoo super starter kit projects that come with the kit and are available free for download from their site: https://www.elegoo.com/download/
How long will it take?
About 6 weeks.
I usually do one build per day some take longer. There is also set up time to explore kits and teach how to use the software.
