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 are no right or wrong answers, and many different solutions will work! You could also rotate these challenges through a science center. I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub for each individual coding unplugged challenge.
This color square challenge is a great first time coding challenge! You can extend it by having students change the number of color square tiles they use and/or the starting placement of the color tiles.
This pack contains just about everything you need to do this challenge! You will need the following items:
Materials: (per classroom)
Plastic color tile squares (1 inch size)
One inch grid paper
Red, green, blue, and yellow markers
There is one challenge included in this pack as well as a blank grid and chart so that your students can make their own!
Time to Get Coding!
