Julie Daly▸ Task 6: Algorithms & Programming

Hi all. I’ve gone with option 2 & 3 for this task! My flow chart (option 3) is below. It is an algorithm for planting a seed, aimed at the middle primary years. I would have students working in pairs and taking turns to complete each step which should be fairly simple, but it is an activity that can easily integrate into other learning areas such as maths (measurement as the seedling grows, discussions about seasons/weather etc), science (plant biology/life cycle), sustainability and could even provide a platform for some creative writing ideas or report writing. This could also be used for the option 2 task where the steps could be printed onto cards and mixed up so that students needed to sequence them appropriately to achieve the outcome of planting the seed.
