CODING IN SCIENCE – Birds
Coding meets science vocabulary instruction with VoCode! Integrate those robots you have (or turn students into robots) to complete these coding challenges. 3 Options for the activities mean that you can use this with ANY movable Bots and ANY grade level of students. Be sure to check out the images!
The most straightforward way to use these activities is to have students program their bot to go to one term at a time.
To add a challenge, give students multiple stopping points for their path.
This might mean choosing 5 cards from the pile and that is the order in which they need to write their program.
Add levels of complexity by requiring students to program in “jumping over” pieces or spaces, and “collecting” and “discarding” the pieces they picked from the pile.
Due to the factor of choice in these activities, there are no answer keys. Have students check each other.
