This activity is Christmas themed and will be very engaging for primary school-aged children. In this activity, students will be making a beaded Christmas ornament; however, the beads will be representative of the binary system. This means students can come up with a seasonal sayings such as, “ho ho ho” or “Merry Christmas”. After they have decided on their saying, they need to then translate it into binary code. In this article, the author has suggested to put in an extra coloured bead to separate the words.
