Welcome to lesson seven 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:
-Apply loops and nested loops in coding to accomplish tasks
-Effectively test and debug code (if needed)
-Foster a coding mindset
🏫 Guiding Ideas:
As part of the Animal Research Center (ARC), we aim to correct misinformation about animals. In the Gray Wolves lesson, we address the misunderstanding surrounding the gray wolf population, which has suffered due to fear and hunting. With progress encroaching on their habitat, we must help humans better understand wolves to reduce confrontations.
🎒 Student Activities in Gray Wolves Lesson:
1️⃣ Secure the Chicken Coup
2️⃣ Moving the Sheep
4️⃣ Clearing the area
📚 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 contribute to the well-being of gray wolves! 🐺🌳
