SFUSD's Creative Computing
3-5 Curriculum - Green
SFUSD's creative computing curriculum introduces computer science as a creative, collaborative, and engaging discipline to children in third through fifth grade. The Green Level curriculum serves as a foundational entry point for students in grades 3-5 to begin exploring computer science concepts.
Across 4 units and 12-20 lessons, students will learn about algorithms and programming through programming in Scratch, while developing strong practices and dispositions. Lessons are designed to be implemented in 45 to 60-minute periods approximately once per week.
The Green Level curriculum contains 4 units of 5 lessons, for a total of 20 lessons. To accommodate different school schedules, we offer the following accordion-style model for expanding or contracting the number of lessons in each unit so that students can experience the content in all 4 units in a 12-, 16-, or 20- session Computer Science course.
