Contents:

Vocabulary Pages 3 & 4

Lesson 1: Program your Painter Pages 5-8

Lesson 2: Write your own binary code Pages 9-13

Lesson 3: The ASCII Code Alphabet Pages 14-16

These activities would make a great compliment to the code.org computer science lessons. I laminate the practice pages and my students complete them with dry erase markers. In the tech lab I’m always looking for ways to save paper!

    This packet is very good for teaching about pixels. It is challenging for the students so it was better for the older kids.

  2. Caitlin G. (verified owner)

    Definitely for middle school students, they found it very interesting as we added on to our coding and computer lessons!

  3. Kim O. (verified owner)

    I used this activity after I did a few lessons on binary coding. I loved hearing the positive comments the students were making as they worked on the activities. It is always good to hear them saying how much fun an activity is.

  4. Christy P. (verified owner)

    I used this with my 3rd grade gifted students – we had a unit on binary coding and this fit right in. My students loved the activities!

  5. Rachel S. (verified owner)

    My students absolutely loved these unplugged coding activities. They would ask for these once they were finished other assigned work.
