Title: Computer Science Fundamentals Unit 5 Course D Lesson 10: Snowflakes With Anna and Elsa (2018)

Now that students know how to layer their loops, they can create so many beautiful things. This lesson will take students through a series of exercises to help them create their own portfolio-ready images using Anna and Elsa's excellent ice-skating skills!

In this series, students will get practice nesting loops while creating images that they will be excited to share. Beginning with a handful of instructions, students will make their own decisions when it comes to creating designs for repetition. They will then spin those around a variety of ways to end up with a work of art that is truly unique.

Students will be able to:
- break apart code into the largest repeatable sequences using both loops and nested loops.
- recognize the difference between using a loop and a nested loop.
- describe when a loop, nested loop, or no loop is needed.
