Learning Objectives

  • Learn to launch MakeCode. Make a simple code with few commands. In the building area: experiment on building with blocks

Guiding Ideas

Can you teach the Little Agent to find the right way through the path between the paths?

For more developed students they can be asked to use logic in stead of so many commands (if, else))

 

Student Activities

You have 14 similar but different pathways. One for each student. Only give them the number of the path they work in. Probably they need help with the MakeCode launching. (press -T- and put in /code or use the shortcut for Code Connection. After solving the pathway lesson, the kids can walk to the building area and experiment more. in the end they work together building with blocks

Performance Expectations

Students solve the puzzles by coding the agent.

Students create their own puzzle in the building area.

The world is in creative but immutable mode. The building area is allowed to build on.
