This activity introduces children to the Kodu games programming environment through tinkering. They are asked to experiment with an existing game code, and also to start from a blank screen.
Guided questioning is used to ensure the tinkering is purposeful. The children are asked to share what they have found out and to evaluate their approach.
Assessment opportunities are included, as are tips for differentiation. Teacher notes explain the approach taken to learning by tinkering.
