This classroom activity is a great way to introduce students to databases.
Students will visit a website and choose 20 colleges of their choice and hand write their information in the table. This is a fun activity that allows students to search for something they enjoy while learning about databases.
After gathering their data, students will open Microsoft Access (2013, 2016) and create a database, a table, key field names and choose appropriate data types.
After creating database and table, students will proceed to key in the data from the handout. There is a 10 question review at end that covers, filename, fields, records, entries, datasheet view and design view.
