On Friday, December 8th, the 5th grade students participated in Hour of Code. The day before, the students watched a 5 minute video titled “Computer Science is Changing Everything.” The video showed all the ways computer science is incorporated into our lives and the different professions it impacts.
The morning of Hour of Code, the students came in excited for the opportunity to participate! Each student used a Google Chromebook and had the choice of using Tynker for Kids, Hour of Code activities from Hourofcode.org and/or Scratch. The students coded within a variety of lessons and created many different projects. In Tech Literacy class, the students will continue to complete coding activities through the remainder of the year.
