Overview:

Computers have lots of different parts and each has a special job.

Some will be inside the computer and others will be outside. Some parts are attached by wires and others are wireless.

The parts that make up a computer are called "hardware." Programs which tell a computer what to do are called "software." The hardware needs the software to tell it what to do.

Students will identify computer parts in a clickable activity as well as a game.
