This lesson references how one mile equals a little more than one and one half kilometer. You might want to introduce the metric system and the two measurements to students.
Students should know the difference between text, numbers, and dates in written form.
Students should know that database tables in database programs are called datasheets, each row in a datasheet is called a record, and each column is called a field. You might also want to start using the word criteria when discussing data contained in a field.
The database lessons incorporate information about our solar system by following two robots from the fictional company S-SPACE (Solar System Planets Are Cool Enterprises) on their mission to find the perfect location to build a S-SPACE City. This lesson’s setting is Jupiter. You might want to show and discuss facts about Jupiter with students before they take the EasyTech lesson. Some facts include: o Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is a giant hurricane as big as three Earths. o It is the biggest planet in our solar system. o Jupiter has 63 moons as well as the largest known moon (Ganymede). o It is one of the four gas giants.
