Coding meets vocabulary instruction with VoCode! Integrate those robots you have (or turn students into robots) to complete these coding challenges. 3 Options for the activities mean that you can use this with ANY movable Bots and ANY grade level of students. Be sure to check out the images!
6/2/20 Now includes six digital slides for each set that can be used in Google Slides or PowerPoint!
- Computer Parts
- PC Keyboard Shortcuts
- Computer Icons
- Google Apps Icons
- MS Office Icons
- Parts Inside a Computer
How to Use Each Set:
- The most straightforward way to use these activities is to have students program their bot to go to one term at a time.
- To add a challenge, give students multiple stopping points for their path.
- This might mean choosing 5 cards from the pile and that is the order in which they need to write their program.
- Add levels of complexity by requiring students to program in “jumping over” pieces or spaces, and “collecting” and “discarding” the pieces they picked from the pile.
- Due to the factor of choice in these activities, there are no answer keys. Have students check each other.
