Hour of Code Companion Resources

I’ve created a set of companion resources to go alongside the Hour of Code activities on the HoC website (www.hourofcode.com) as I kept finding that, although my pupils loved using them, they kept getting stuck on the same levels and didn’t know how to grasp the basics, such as using repeats or variables to make their code more efficient.

I’ve picked out some of the most challenging levels in the Hour of Code activities, the Frozen and Plant vs. Zombies activities. Once they’ve got a grasp of how to use the repeats and variables on these activities, they should then be able to go on the complete the other activities independently.

Also attached is a scaffolded version of the worksheet guide for pupils with additional learning needs.
