The keyboard is a way to input letters or numbers into different applications or programs.  A keyboard also has special keys that help operate the computer.


The mouse is used to open and close files, navigate web sites, and click on a lot of commands (to tell the computer what to do) when using different applications.


A scanner is used to copy pictures or other things and save them as files on the computer.


A microphone is used to record sound.  The sound is then saved as a sound file on the computer.


A joystick is used to move the cursor from place to place, and to click on various items in programs.  A joystick is used mostly for computer games.
