I have been using CS Unplugged to reinforce computer science concepts after teaching technical skills that have been abstracted. CS Unplugged is a great curriculum for teaching computer science concepts to students without being plugged to a computer. I've found students are able to complete the worksheet activities with little to no assistance, though I have class discussions to ensure students take away the main point of the activities. I expect that for students younger than 7th grade may require more guided discussions in addition to an ending discussion to ensure the main concept is taken away.
