CS First is a free computer science curriculum that makes coding easy to teach and fun to learn. The CS First website contains 20 modules of coding and computer science lessons aligned to CSTA and ISTE standards, and in many cases, individual lessons are aligned to NGSS and Common Core standards. The site also features resources and professional development for educators and additional guides and supplemental resources like certificates. The curriculum is free to use and adapt and if desired, a teacher dashboard is available for saving student work and tracking student progress.
Two characters meet in a world and discover a surprising object. Students get to decide what happens next by creating a story with code.
Students complete a set of offline, unplugged activities introducing computer science concepts that show how technology keeps us connected.
Students provide details about a character who is missing a school assignment and use code to describe the character's actions, thoughts, and words.
This document is intended to guide you as you start your CS First experience. It provides an overview of how CS First works, and should be used in conjunction with your lesson-specific plans (available on the CS First website).
In this collaboration between Cartoon Network and CS First, students tell a story using the characters from “The Amazing World of Gumball.”
