Tools of the Trade

Computers are all around us. They help us in everyday tasks. Children use computers for entertainment, looking up information and staying in touch with one another. People in shops, factories, hospitals and schools use lots of different kinds of computers in lots of different ways.

In this activity we’ll think about what kinds of computers are used by different professions. Would the police need a tablet with patient data? Would a sales clerk need a burglar alarm?

Cut out the computers and match each one to the correct person.

After you complete the activity, think of another profession and what kinds of computers they might use! What kinds of computers do a farmer, flight attendant and veterinarian need?
