Day of Code

Today students did a variety of activities surrounding coding.  Some activities were unplugged, while others were plugged.  Plugged activities included an hour of code where students learned how to code on Khan Academy.  My Robotic Friends was an unplugged activity where students used arrows to create directions/code for the "robot" to stack the cups in a certain way.  Many students also led My Robotic Friends with other k-3 communities.  In math class, students created a time line of the history of data storage and our 8th graders expanded their understanding of exponential growth.  In Language Arts, student previewed 3 commercials spanning many years and compared and contrasted the technology available.
