Lesson 1 is an introduction to the Codesters toolkit. Students will complete activities based on our lesson Pedagogy. 1) Drag from the toolkit 2) Change the code by typing in the editor and 3) write code and learn syntax by doing debugging activities.
The last activity of every lesson is a "create" project. This is where students to show mastery and creativity by applying what they learned in the skill building part of the lesson. "Create" projects post to the class page so that students can explore each other's projects.
Lesson 1: Create an Interactive Greeting Card
- Many students find it enough to just explore the toolkit for this first create so you can encourage then to create a card but it is fine if they do not.
- Share theme ideas (Birthday, Spring, Halloween,...) to spark creativity.
Example #1 - Birthday Card
Example #2 - Happy Summer Card
Example #3 - Happy Mother's Day Card
Sharing Student Work - Video to become familiar with the class page and the importance of highlight student work and engaging student with peer review
