Educator Guide Island 3
Island 3 world
Welcome to the Kingdom of the Floating Islands. This mystical kingdom floats high above the world below. Throughout this collection of lessons, students will learn the basics of Python, through a series of themed tasks in each world. Completing these tasks will allow the kingdom to develop further technologically.
In Island 3, you will be focusing on repeating sections of code, specifically using a “For loop”.
Explain to students, that this island builds upon the previous work they have done in Island 2. Once again, their agent will be returning, although in this lesson they will be focusing repeating sections of code a fixed number of times, without the need to copy/paste. Their agent will help them complete a series of tasks that they wouldn’t be able to otherwise complete.
