The best thing about games is the graphics. Kids love to learn how to draw through coding and as a bonus, this will also reinforce their coordinate math skills. As kids write simple draw commands they learn how to problem solve one line at a time. This package gives you everything! 3 versions of every student handout, PowerPoint lessons, two assessments, code exemplars and answer keys.
There are several advantages of using 3 different versions especially in classrooms where the seating is tight. The versions would be given consecutively around the room so that students sitting together would each get something slightly different. This way students have different examples of the same exercise so they can work together to determine how something works. It also minimizes the amount of copying within the class.
This is the first of 5 resources. It is intended for students with little or no background in computer programming. Concepts and skills have been broken down into short chunks. Students are given short code fragments to explore, followed by questions to consolidate their learning. Two assessments have been provided at the end of this package. They are also asked to reflect on their learning and provided terminology to begin a programming dictionary.
The student handouts will require photocopying but that is all!
