In this coding challenge, students will work together remotely to create a code that draws a picture. This is an activity that students will complete and pass along in the background of a video call, so plan on filling its downtime with another lesson or game. Alternatively, it could be completed over the course of a week or full-day.
With the Class
Congratulations on completing your coding activity! Your next steps are:
1. Share on social media that your class has completed an Hour of Code™ using the tags #HourOfCode and #iRobotEducation
2. Visit code.org/api/hour/finish to download your Hour of Code™ Completion Certificate!
CSTA K-12 CS Standards
Store, copy, search, retrieve, modify, and delete information using a computing device and define the information stored as data.
Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem.
Decompose (break down) the steps needed to solve a problem into a precise sequence of instructions.
Develop plans that describe a program’s sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes.
Give attribution when using the ideas and creations of others while developing programs.
Debug (identify and fix) errors in an algorithm or program that includes sequences and simple loops.
Work respectfully and responsibly with others online.
Create programs that include sequences, events, loops, and conditionals.
Decompose (break down) problems into smaller, manageable subproblems to facilitate the program development process.
Modify, remix, or incorporate portions of an existing program into one's own work, to develop something new or add more advanced features.
Use an iterative process to plan the development of a program by including others' perspectives and considering user preferences.
Observe intellectual property rights and give appropriate attribution when creating or remixing programs.
Next Generation Science Standards
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
