Session Four: Understanding More Python Commands
This activity in the Rapid Router series takes children further in their transition to text-based programming in Python.
By creating Blockly programs and comparing them to the automatically-generated Python code, children are encouraged to identify code which matches. The complexity of the problems is greatly reduced from the later Blockly activities, allowing them to build-up their new skills. Syntax and the structure of code blocks is studied, and children can progress on to look at the similarities and differences when defining functions.
Code cards, wall displays, model solutions, assessment guides and detailed teacher instructions are provided.
