Task 7: Visual Programming


Option 2: Describe a classroom activity that incorporates a visual programming environment (it can be any included in this module or another environment that you come across).

I would use the Bee Bots in JP classrooms to assist my students in understanding directional movements. I would have them work in small groups to create mazes on the floor (or outside) using straws, twigs, chalk etc to map out the maze. The students then would need to program the Bee Bots to complete the maze. This would be a fun and engaging way to teach JP students about direction and programming in the early years.
