I think that this activity will be quite challenging for a lot of students.
A couple ideas:
- Use painter’s tape and make 5x5 grid on floor. Ask for a volunteer to follow the program - great for the kinesthetic learners!
- While a volunteer follows the program - I created a [handout] (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzNj-uq3VtWKUHgxTmxWLUgySHc) that can be placed in a sheet protector. Give each student a dry-erase marker and eraser (or paper towels). They’ll fill in the squares as needed, then implement the program.
I’ll share with teachers this Saturday and see what everyone thinks.
