This coding unplugged activity is one of many that I am creating to use in my STEM classroom! We do these coding challenges about once a week. They are great for teaching sequencing and logical reasoning to students. There is a chart of the letters in binary code included! You could also rotate these challenges through a Maker Space or science center. I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub for each individual coding unplugged challenge.
This Coding Necklace challenge is a great coding challenge! You can extend it by having students write short notes to each other using the code.
This pack contains just about everything you need to do this challenge! You will need the following items:
Materials: (per classroom)
- Cylinder seed beads (we used black, white, and gold ones from Amazon)
- Necklace cord (be sure it is thin enough for the beads to fit)
- Code Sheet for Each Letter of the Alphabet
- Recording Sheets
There is a paper challenge version for students to complete on their own first so they learn how to do the coding sequence included in this pack before they make their actual name necklace!
