Programming by second grade students
I gave this activity in programming and geometry to second grade students who have had a
half-hour of programming in Logo once a week for a year.
They know basic commands well and have been working on manipulating the Logo
turtle in more advanced ways.
Students always work in teams of two or
three to encourage the concept of computing as a team effort; the blocks promote this and
give the activity the feel of play. This was
a favorite activity of the students to datethey told me so.
