Kindergarten – Coding in Scratch Jr.

After the kindergarten students were introduced to the program Scratch Jr., they created a program using multiple characters that interacted with each other.  Using the toy room setting, the baby had to bump into the ball, the ball had to move, and the character “Tac” had to jump up and down.  Each student works with a partner during the activity.

4th Grade – Reaction Test

Our fourth grade students spent several classes designing their own reaction test for patients with concussions.  They used their knowledge from the previous coding lessons to design their very own game.  It took a lot of trial and error, as well as debugging to create the game.  It was a great real world connection to the type of work done by the creators of our favorite video games!
