  2. Click on the card for the class you created.
  3. Click on the blue Add activities button.
  4. Select one of our one-hour or multi-day activities, by clicking the grey Add to class button.
  5. Choose your materials preference. Please note that classroom kits are only available for multi-day activities.

You can add multiple one-hour or multi-day activities to a class.

Choosing an activity

Visit our Curriculum page for basic guidance on difficulty level and choose any activity that interests you and your students.

We recommend that you choose one activity per class at a time. They are designed to be social and collaborative and there is a lot of value and support that students offer one another when they work on the same activity.
There is choice embedded in each lesson in a variety of ways that elicit creativity and innovation by students including: add-ons, time to explore and extend, and if they finish early, they can still access any and all of the other CS First activities.
