An activity that I did for a computer clubs and helping them understand repeats and giving instructions as an introduction to writing code was to have students use excel to create a picture by colouring in the different cells. Once they completed their drawing they had write down the instructions for a class mate to reproduce the drawing based on the instructions given. Once students had written down their instructions they would then give it to another student who would draw the picture in MS Excel based on the instructions given. Students compared their drawings if they were not the same they had to try work backwards to work out where they went wrong.
