Teaching and learning resources for A&P 2. Please check back as I intend to add more.
This is a lesson plan designed for 3rd-5th graders that focuses on the core concepts of robots and what it takes to code them. Students build an understanding of algorithms and how to write a sequence of steps in order to accomplish a task. The lesson plan includes four vocabulary words that are regularly used in the lesson, a group Kahoot game to master these words, and instructions and handouts for a "code your friend" game where students get to pretend to be the robot.
The lesson takes 45 minutes.
Algorithm: a list of steps to finish a task
Program: an algorithm that has been coded into something that can be run by a machine
Bug: part of a program that does not work correctly
Debugging: finding and fixing problems in an algorithm or program

In this activity, students are learning about school supplies. The lab assistant will start with a Kahoot game that covers the majority of school supplies vocabulary. For the main activity, students are going to play jeopardy to practice vocabulary and also to practice making complete sentences. They will then be asked wrap up questions.
