Tutorial

Procedure

Day 1:

This lesson plan will include the use of our school computer cart with Dell laptops.
 

The students first send one partner to the front of class to retrieve one laptop without the cord. They will take the computer to place on their table with their partner. The next step has one of the students logging in to their student account to access the WiFi network for the class.
 

Upon full boot up of the system, the students will open a browser and type in the following web address in the browser window:
 

http://www.sciencegeek.net/Biology/Millionaire2/index.html
 

Students will take turns being the “contestant” until one of them become a “Millionaire”. Once they both have become a “Millionaire” they are to go to the following website to do some practice questions:

The students are to do a minimum of 15 flashcards, 15 matching questions, and 15 multiple choice questions.


Once completed or 10 minutes prior to the bell ringing, students will be instructed to shut down the computer, and walk the computer back to the cart under my supervision. I will store the computers and charge them up with the power cord.
