Computer courses for kids are as important as any other course in school these days, as knowing how to operate and navigate the programs on a computer are integral to the overall learning environment. For those just learning how to use a computer, there are a number of worksheets teachers can distribute that quiz people on the different parts of the computer and how to use different programs.

Hardware Identification

The physical hardware of the computer, ranging from the monitor to keyboard to mouse, is the first step when learning about computers. Pictures or drawings can be presented on a computer worksheet and those using it should try to identify each piece of hardware. This can be done by having a list of hardware names for students to use to fill in a blank, or by matching the letter beside the name to the drawing of a piece of computer hardware. This quiz can be taken one step further by asking students to describe on their worksheets what each piece of computer hardware does.

Software Identification

Knowing what software applications are on each computer is the next step. Icons of different software applications should be shown, ranging from Internet browsers to word-processing programs to photography and editing programs. Students should be asked to label and identify each of these programs based on their icons and then give a description of what program does and when they would need to use them. Similar pieces of software should also be grouped together and differences between them should be described.

Screen Layout

Computer worksheets should also break down where everything is located on a computer screen, ranging from different folders, hard drive icons, docks for applications and file menus that allow users to do different tasks within a program. These computer worksheets should cover screen layouts on both Macintosh and PC computers, as they have their basic operating system utilities in different places. Screen shots or diagrams of each desktop should be presented on the worksheet and students should be asked to label each part. Questions of how to find a specific application or about how to do a certain task can also be asked and the student should have to describe the process on the worksheet.
