Lesson 2 World
Lesson 2 Educator Guide
We are continuing in our work with the Animal Research Center (ARC) and going on our first assignment to the Galapagos Islands. We have received reports of tourists entering the nearby turtle nesting ground. We need to see if the reports are true and investigate the area for damage. Less than 1% of baby turtles make it to maturity. The slightest disruption of the local ecosystem can reduce that number even further. By utilizing the skills, we learned with our Agent we are going to make necessary repairs and clean up the area.
Activity 1: Turtle tracks
Activity 2: Agent turn
Activity 3: Blocked path
Activity 4: Garbage clean-up
Bonus activity: Beach clean-up
Ask the students about the skills that they have learned during the lesson, to reinforce the concepts.

3. Q. What is it called when we repeat code over and over?
4. Q. What are detailed instructions or formulas for solving a problem or completing a task?
