This coding maze activity is a great introduction to the basics of programming and is ideal for Kindergarten through 3rd graders. After completing the activity, students can work together to create their maze and communicate their written program to help navigate their peers through the maze. Similar block coding activities are also available on coding websites and applications for kids including Scratch, Kodable, and Code.org.
Why are Unplugged Activities Important?
Unplugged activities allow students to participate in kinesthetic opportunities that help them relate the concepts they are learning to their own lives. These activities are designed to encourage collaboration among peers as students work in groups or pairs to design solutions and test them together. Unplugged activities are great for classrooms or homes that don't have access to the internet or a computer and ideal for young students who don't have the experience working with computers. It's never too early to start teaching the foundation of coding.
