Grades 1 & 2

Using a series of activities, this lesson will talk about seasons and how we can represent them with a mathematical model because they follow a pattern. Students will learn about conditional statements and then use them to illustrate seasonal changes.

Grades 3 & 4

In this lesson, students will learn to recognize gears as a part of a pattern which allow us to predict how gears interact with one another. With this knowledge, students will create rules for gears using conditional statements and apply those rules using both an unplugged activity and an activity using Scratch.

Grades 5 & 6

Students will learn the basics of binary as the basis for computer information and perform a hands-on unplugged investigation of patterns in binary. Expanding from this knowledge, students will build simple circuits in TinkerCAD Circuits and investigate coding algorithms, including loops and conditional statements, that can be used to control a circuit’s output.

Resources to come!

Grades 7 & 8

Through a series of hands-on and coding activities, students will investigate cell organelles and their functions. Students will learn that many cellular processes are governed by rules or patterns that can be interpreted and expressed in code as conditional statements and loops. They will illustrate this learning by creating a playable Scratch game based on these patterns in cell functions.
