An Introduction to Coding - Coding a Route

A great way to introduce the basics of coding in the classroom - no computers necessary.

The worksheet is made up of an example code that creates a route from the bottom to the top of a grid. There are then 3 further tasks for the children to complete which involve writing the code for the route as well as reading code and colouring the corresponding route.

Extra idea: If you have tiled floors in your classroom or some accessible area of the school, then you can introduce the same concept using children as the players that move along the route. To add extra interest you could blindfold the player!
