This St-Patrick's day set has students code the leprechaun to its pot of gold and avoid the mushroom obstacles. This no-tech coding activity is perfect for introducing the basics of directional coding to your students. There are no devices needed, just print and go!
Students will learn to code by creating their own paths using arrows, or they can test their skills by solving the task cards. They can then use the recording page to write their program.
2 different activity sets are included with this download, a 4x4 grid and a 6x6 grid. Choose the level of difficulty you would like to give your students. Each of the sets includes the following:
What is included:
→ Work Mat: a grid that students can use to place their leprechaun, pot of gold, mushrooms, and coding cards.
→ Arrow Cards: students place these cards on their work mat to code their path from the leprechaun to the pot of gold.
→ Picture Cards: leprechaun, pot of gold and mushrooms. Students place these cards on their work mat.
→ 12 Task Cards: Students can replicate the placement of the items on their work mat, then figure out the code to solve it.
→ Recording Page: Students can write out the code they used to solve the task cards by drawing the arrows they used to get the leprechaun to the pot of gold.
→ *BONUS* Bee-Bot Cards: If you would like to take this coding activity to the next level, you can use these cards with a clear mat or grid and a Bee-Bot.
