Product Description
Computer operation drama and working paper computer
The CPU operations and machine cycle come alive

A popular lesson pack selected from the Complete Books.

Teacher has students act in various roles of the components of a computer as it processes a simple instruction of adding two numbers. The role of the CPU comes alive and the amazing speed of the whole operation is emphasised.

A full detailed script is provided here, which can be either read aloud by the students standing under the name of their role on the board or learned by heart, along with a worksheet (with teacher answers) for class revision after the drama.

Build a paper computer and understand the CPU - seeing is believing

This is a real hit! Students cut out a working paper computer which processes the same operations described in the drama lesson above. Or this activity can stand on its own.
Students slide a paper panel while the steps a computer makes when it adds two numbers are explained and the data appear in cut out windows.

Every thing required is provided in this lesson pack! Sheets to construct the paper computer, scripts for the drama, worksheet handouts for students on the theory and detailed lesson outline notes for the teacher.
