Unit 3 Shared Resources


#1

Hi there! Our school is new to teaching Code Discoveries and I’ve been making up my own resources for each lesson. Does anyone have any “challenge” projects made up for lessons 7 on and be willing to share?! I really appreciate it!! My students are LOVING this curriculum. I’m pretty much looking for something for them to do in the free play section, for example, they have to make a something that meets certain guidelines. Thanks in advance!

My students love Unit 3. For the students who needed “challenge” projects, I encouraged them to add, make improvements, use feedback from other students to make iterations and add complexity to their free play levels.

I tell them that but they don’t always want to.

Erin,

I have also had students try to recreate their favorite “side-scroller” game or even old school Zelda. Often times they look at these older games and think they are “lame”, but then try to re-create and it takes some time which is helpful for them to know how much time genuinely goes into them. Just a suggestion!
