Using characters from the Ice Age, students will develop sequential algorithms to move Scrat from one side of a maze to the acorn at the other side. To do this, they will stack code blocks together in a linear sequence, making them move straight, turn left, or turn right.
In this lesson, students will develop programming and debugging skills on a computer platform. The block-based format of these puzzles help students learn about sequence and concepts, without having to worry about perfecting syntax.
Students will be able to:
- Construct a program by reorganizing sequential movements.
- Build a computer program from a set of written instructions.
- Choose appropriate debugging practices when solving problems.
