We have some budding computer programmers in our 5th and 6th grade. Several have been working on completing a free online computer science course sponsored by Code.org. One activity in the course is to create your own version of Flappy Bird, the popular app.
One of the students’ favorites is called “Christmas Rush.” The author, Coleton P, describes it as “an addicting game for stimulation for the average kid.” He coded it to count by 2’s so that kids might learn their multiples at the same time. Try it out for yourself: Coleton’s “Christmas Rush”
If you hate to lose, try Princess’ game. Or her second game.
Here’s one from Trinity.
Here’s Caleb M’s game–you can lose and gain points!
When students create code for a computer, they are practicing writing careful directions to complete a task. They have to diagnose and solve problems to make the instructions clear and correct. Also, it’s fun.
Good luck and flap carefully.
