The children enjoy programming two characters to say something and perform an action (dance) when a certain key is pressed on the keyboard.
These handouts are very popular with children in the Computer Programming class.
After completing and saving the project, the children will be able to share their work online.
Programming concepts covered in the teaching plan include:
- animation: switching costumes
- say: string (of characters)
- conditionals: when
- loops: forever
- colour effects
