Welcome to lesson four of the CS and IT Curriculum for 3-5th grade students. You will find an overview of the lesson below and a link to download the resource files at the bottom of this description. Simply click the link to download the Zip file and then extract it.
🎯 Learning Objectives:
-Master loops and conditionals in coding to complete tasks
-Effectively test and debug code
-Foster a coding mindset
🏫 Guiding Ideas:
As our journey continues in the Animal Research Center (ARC), we find ourselves in the Arctic, investigating a report of a baby polar bear separated from its family. Melting glaciers due to rising temperatures pose challenges, making survival difficult for polar bears. Using coding skills, we embark on a mission to rescue and safeguard these precious creatures.
🎒 Student Activities in Polar Bear Rescue:
1️⃣ Locate the Cub
2️⃣ The Great Chasm
3️⃣ Higher Ground
🌟 Bonus Activity: Separated Family
📚 Performance Expectations:
Reinforce concepts learned by asking students:
1️⃣ What does the Agent Detect block do?
2️⃣ What is a conditional?
3️⃣ What is it called when we repeat code over and over?
4️⃣ TRUE OR FALSE: The Agent can hold its own inventory.
📝 Formative Assessment:
Use these questions to gauge students' understanding of the lesson's concepts. A printable version is available in the educator's guide. Together, let's code with purpose and make a difference in the Arctic! 🐾❄️
