This unit introduces your students to computational thinking. They'll begin to understand what a sequence is, be able to follow instructions to create a sequence, and describe the sequence to their peers. They'll learn how to break problems down into smaller parts, identify cause and effect, and understand simple loops. Finally, they'll explore the process of testing and debugging programs to ensure that their programs work as intended.
Your students find ways of helping the main characters, and practice recounting an experience using relevant details. This will help to develop their collaborative conversation skills.
