How I use This In My Classroom:

I use this activity across various grade levels K-5. I begin by reviewing coding vocabulary terms and making sure students understand the concepts to code. I provide the entire class with a starting sheet, as students complete correctly, they can move up to moderate and difficult sheets. Students in upper grade levels begin with the more advanced sheets.

I also create stations by putting the sheets into dry erase pockets! Students use expo markers to record their code & erase for the next student.
