Getting Started Lesson

Inside this 30-minute hands-on lesson, our team will walk you and your students through signing into CS First and how to import previous Scratch for CS First projects into your CS First account.

Teacher PD Workshops

In August, we hosted 60-minute Crate overview workshops where we explored:

  • How CS First connects to your curriculum

  • A sneak peek of what’s coming inside the co-taught lessons and Cobblestone Crate for your subject area

  • Behind the scenes of CS First and how CS First helps keep you and your class organized

  • Best practices for participating in the co-taught lesson and using the Cobblestone Crate with your class

This video-rich resource is designed to be copied and given directly to your students.  Students will then be able to watch the embedded videos that will provide them with step-by-step instructions and tips to help them complete the Music & Sound Unit in CS First.  Teachers, you can use it too and learn alongside them!
