Check out the website here: Hour of Code.
Students were able to write code for a variety of different characters.
Some chose to write code for Elsa and Anna from Frozen.
Some chose to write code for Angry Birds.
Minecraft was a very popular choice.
And of course, with the Star Wars movie coming out this week, there had to be a puzzle for Star Wars!
We had to move the blocks to tell the computer how to make the characters move.
It took some time, and the puzzles didn't always work out the first time. We had to try more than once to solve them, and ask each other for help.
However, we stuck with it, and we were able to solve the puzzles!
When we finished, we received a certificate for working on our puzzles!
If your child enjoyed coding and would like to continue on his or her own, check out this link on our classroom website with additional coding opportunities.
