Educator Guide Island 5
Lesson 5 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 5, you will be focusing on using Functions. Functions are mini programs, that you can then run as many times as you want, all from within your program.
Explain to students, that this island builds upon the previous work they have done in Island 4. Once again, their agent will be returning, although in this lesson they will be focusing on building out their own functions. Their agent will help them complete a series of tasks that they wouldn’t be able to otherwise complete.
