Task 6: Algorithms & ProgrammingCategory
Option 2: Design an activity that explores sequences of instructions. In the early years, this could be an activity that encourages childr..
I would like the students to bring 3 different colored pens and a piece of paper. I will first draw color a,b,c,a on the paper, and ask wh..
For algorithm, students could do activities such as getting ready for school. They can break down the steps, do their morning routines and..
For algorithm, students could do activities such as brushing their teeth. They could decompose the steps, do their preparation and come up..
This image shows an algorithm in the form of a flowchart. It describes the steps to pour a glass of milk. You get the milk from the fridge..
A simple flowchart for younger students when they are not feeling well in class.
This is a lesson I would do in a Reception class.
Brainstorm a few procedures they would do everyday and represent them graphically. T..
An arrival at class flowchart. A visual and easy to follow class routine guide as well as a model for flow chart creation.
Students could take a seemingly simple activity such as teeth brushing to decompose the steps, prepare and test a flow chart of tasks, exp..
Dump out a basket of socks on the floor. The teacher will need your help to sort the socks.
What’s the best way to..
This poster is designed for students to refer to during the process of teaching computational thinking to years 3 – 7. It could ..
Option 1: Create a resource (poster, video, presentation slide, document) that explains either decomposition, abstraction or computational..
Design an activity that explores sequences of instructions:
Before the lesson, photocopy the ‘make paper plane instructions’ sheet onto..
When it comes to crossing the road, there are a number of logical steps that one must take first.
Someone who has done the task many ti..
- Students play a game which is well known to them.
- Students attempt to describe the game to a friend.
- Students record the process..
I have created a PowerPoint which could be used in a presentation when explaining computational thinking to teachers. It includes helpful ..
This task involves 2 parts.
Part 1 – students are to write explicit instructions which will get them through a maze set up for them.
In this task the students will role play how to brush your teeth.
First you wet your toothbrush.
Then you place a fingernail size am..
Algorithm for turning classroom lights out and saving energy.
Decomposition is breaking down of a project or a problem in to smaller manageable parts. It helps to solve complex problems and manage eff..
