Educator Guide Conditional Loops
Conditional Loops world
These learning activities are designed to provide the learner with flexibility and choice in his/her learning.
1.The learner will be introduced to three tutorials that are at three levels of difficulty (Novice, Intermediate and Expert) which are followed by an educational activity where he/she can apply coding skills.
The learner may choose a tutorial at his/her appropriate difficulty level and language OR choose to complete all tutorials and the educational activity. It will take approximately an hour to complete all activities.
TUTORIAL 1: DESTROY PASSAGE (Novice-5 minutes)
Main objective: The learner will utilize conditional loops to code the agent to clear a passage.

EDUCATIONAL APPLICATION (20 minutes)
Subject Area: Life Science
The learner will:
Outcome of This Activity:
The learner will have successfully coded the agent using conditional loops to farm the row of crops using the hoe, seeds and bone meal.
Possible Solution for this Activity: https://makecode.com/_AC11WzV8o0gy
Ask the learner about the skills that they have practiced during the activity to reinforce new concepts.
It’s the state of an object. It can be true or false.
2. What is a conditional loop?
A conditional loop is a way for tasks to be repeated as long as a certain aspect or condition is true.
3. Why are conditional loops important in coding?
Conditional loops allow tasks to be completed based on the surrounding environment.
