Shirley Ratinac▸ U2: Algorithms & Programming

Good Morning. I am a new casual teacher and am always looking for coding ideas that can be done in a relatively short space of time. I have also noticed that many of the schools in my area already have coding as part of their curriculum, so I don't want to go in with tasks that are too easy. Also, because I don't always know what resources are available, I focus on using the unplugged resources from and other places. Many great lesson plans there.

One idea is to create algorithms for sporting drills – say a netball or soccer skill drill. This will encourage students to use loops and decisions. How do we tell the players when to stop or change their activity? How do we break down each step? Can we sequence a series of drills? For those who prefer dancing to team sports, they could use the same idea to create a routine. Could also use the For Loop lesson from to help. Anybody can Learn
