In the last stage students used loops to repeat simple movements. Now they're going to add to that the looping of actions in order to help the bee collect more nectar and make more honey.

Students will:

  • Write a program for a given task which loops a single command
  • Identify when a loop can be used to simplify a repetitive action
  • Employ a combination of sequential and looped commands to move and perform actions

We are participating in the Hour of Code event.  The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.  Anybody can host an Hour of Code anytime, but the grassroots campaign goal is for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 7-13, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week.  Check out for more information.

In this series of puzzles students will build on the understanding of algorithms learned in the Graph Paper Programming and Real-Life Algorithms Unplugged activities. Featuring characters from the game Angry Birds, students will develop sequential algorithms to move a bird from one side of the maze to the pig at the other side. To do this they will stack blocks together in a linear sequence to move straight or turn left and right.

By "programming" one another to draw pictures, students will begin to understand what programming is really about. The class will begin by having students instruct each other to color squares in on graph paper in an effort to reproduce an existing picture. If there’s time, the lesson can conclude with images that the students create themselves.
