Learning Objectives

  • When students visit Comdr. Cadfield on the ship they can revisit each of the planets they have worked in. Each planet will have five different activities to test the coding skills with the Agent. Working collaboratively, let's see how many can be accomplished.

Guiding Ideas

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

• The lesson provides a lot more freedom in how students will tackle the activities and in what order;

• The lesson is collaborative, which means students will be working in groups in the same world;

• No “reset” activity is provided for this lesson;

• No “activity complete/ lesson complete” signs are provided for this lesson;

• Plan to leave 10 minutes at the end for students’ presentation of the projects.

 

Student Activities

LESSON RUNDOWN:

• 5 min – Review

• 5-10 min – Planning, forming groups

• 20-25 min – Collaborative build

• 10-15 min – Presentation

 

Performance Expectations

Each group of students demonstrates

• At least 1 completed coding activity per group;

• Coding solutions include repeat loops, conditional loops, conditionals and operators;

• Students have arrived at more than one successful solution to each of the puzzles.
