QCA Unit 3E Teaching Resources
Teaching Unit 3E: The McWizard lesson plan can be used by any school and any email address.
Teaching with Email
With the teaching resources above, pupils learn about the range and efficiency of various communication methods and can experience how email works.
Our lesson plans for Unit 3E are available as a PDF download and may be reproduced and distributed for teaching purposes.
Any school can use the McWizard games in the lesson plans.
Topics include: exchanging and sharing information, methods of communication through the ages (slideshow also available to download), current methods of communication and sending & receiving email.
Children should achieve an understanding of the development of communication methods, with a focus on using email to communicate over distances.
Most children should develop skills to login, compose, send, read and reply to email. These skills can be extended to include attaching files to emails and using the address book.
