CODING is a FOREIGN LANGUAGE!!
Our 4th graders have learned EVERYTHING about ECOSYSTEMS! It is time to Show What We Know!! We are using a coding app called PBS ScratchJr. Our challenge is to demonstrate the flow of energy in an ecosystem beginning with the sun that includes producers, consumers, and decomposers. The kids have creative flexibility to design their own sprites within the program as long as the challenge is completed.
I honestly have been BLOWN AWAY by the coding creativity of these KIDS!! They understand the topic and are showing their own personalities in their coding!!! Teacher’s DREAM!!
Thanks to the FREY Foundation for the supplies to engage children on this level!!
