Want to take your students coding skills to the next level with fun picture prompts and easy to follow directions? Having your students practice Binary Coding is a simple as a light switch (the main principle of this resource!)

Students will look at a black and white pixel picture and use 1s and 0s to write a binary code. To extend and incorporate what the binary numbers are, students use an exploding dots board (counting strategy) to add up a row of binary numbers.

Please see my Intro To Binary Resource for a full description of how binary works or watch this video on my IGTV.

Product contains 3 levels for differentiation.

Level 1: Look at a black and white picture and write 1s and 0s to represent the blocks.

Level 2: Level 1 plus use addition to add up the binary bits into a base 10 number
