7 More Great Mouse Skills Programs

Last year, I posted four great sites to teach mouse skills. Well, I’ve found seven more since then I want to share with you. They teach kindergartners and first graders how to:

  • single click
  • double click
  • drag and drop

Could you get through as an adult without those skills? Of course not. These sites are wonderfully entertaining approaches to learning these skills:
