Roald Dahl Binary Pixel Art Spreadsheet + differentiated & unplugged version

This is a ‘splendiferous’ bundle that will keep your kids entertained for sure!

Whether it’s because you love Roald Dahl stories, or the kids are currently reading one of his books or you want to develop some ICT skills and computing knowledge in a refreshing way, these activities will do nicely!

Resource 1: A Binary Pixel Art activity which introduces kids to the idea of Binary numbers and gives a quick introduction of how to convert Binary numbers to decimal numbers. Kids will then need to convert simple Binary numbers to decimal numbers for 10 Roald Dahl-themed designs to correctly color them in. There are also 2 additional templates for kids to create their own design and coded version.

Resource 2: This is a differentiated version of the above activity for kids who may find the Binary-decimal conversions too challenging. Nevertheless, they will still have some computing exposure through the understanding of computer images made from individual blocks of color, as well as ICT skills through the use of MS Excel tools.

Resource 3: This is the PDF printable version of Resource 1 for use in case of device / software shortage or in case of preference. (9 of the 10 designs as the 10th one was too big for an A4 printable)

Resource 4: These are the solutions of the 10 wonderful Roald Dahl-themed designs.

These are appropriate for primary aged kids up to secondary and even older as a couple of the designs are quite detailed!

You’ll enjoy them as much as Kids’ Printouts did creating them!

Save for later
