Please consider downloading the separate file (available from my downloads) containing the actual electronic databases which pupils require to complete the activities.
An activity booklet to help pupils learn the practical side of creating databases. Learn to create the correct field types, the correct layout and structures to creating forms. The task booklet also includes work on learning complex searching and sorting, as well as creating forms/reports.
This booklet is created as an introduction to databases, to lead pupils onto the more difficult areas of databases such as normalization.
The booklet is created with different ability levels taken into consideration and contains advanced tasks to challenge higher ability level pupils.
The booklet also contains a variety of knowledge and understanding questions as well as some high order questioning. It also contains practical problem solving questions,
This booklet I use with my 14/15 year old pupils in conjunction with the electronic copies of the databases which they use to complete the tasks. These database files are partially completed which will allow pupils with lower ability to complete the task whilst challenging pupils of all ability levels.
This work booklet is built with 8 separate tasks of which I complete 1 task per period. The extension tasks allow for further work if required.
