Databases

Age Range: 7 - 11
By: John Wright

This activity is for use with the QCA ICT scheme of work (Unit 3c Databases) and is based on a worksheet which can be found below.

The first page has four record cards which should be photocopied onto card and cut up. There need to be sufficient sets for the children to work in pairs. The second sheet is the worksheet which goes alongside the cards.

A great starting point - I teach Year 3 and will definitely be trialing this idea. Thanks very much

Adults can build simple databases using tools like Ragic or DabbleDB on toy inventory or allowances as a real life sample for them to get a more "real" feeling of how a database works. Using tools like this takes less than an hour to build one.
