Algorithm Activities

$4.00

Instant Digital Download!

Teach students how to create and decompose Algorithms with these print and digital activities. 2 types of printable activities ask students to color pictures following an algorithm. 2 types of digital activities ask students to order the steps of an algorithm, identify the bug or an extra step, and then write their own 5 step algorithms for a given topic.

Use these activities as a crash course to understanding what an algorithm is, how to write one, follow one, and decompose one. I even included a simple assessment. See the table of contents for what is included.

No Stress Ordering:

  • Nearly everything here is an instant digital download, which means you can download the files as soon as your order is placed. 
  • You’ll also receive an email with the download link(s) so that you can access them anywhere.
  • There are also some courses and subscriptions that come with both digital downloads and virtual content hosted on my webpages. All of the access information will be provided to you.

The printable sheets make a great bulletin board once students are finished. Just add a header and their colored pages.
