ByteEd Coding Kiwiana Pixel Art Activities - Supporting computer science week (Hour of CodeTM) 2021 Integrating digital technologies and Art, this resource teaches concepts of coding, binary digits and pixel art. Aimed at Year 4 to 8 students. Students decode the numbers to create kiwiana pixel images and develop understanding of binary digits by having each pixel programmed as being black or white (on or off). Three difficulty levels for different abilities with the chance to design, create and encode their own kiwiana art for others to decode too! Computational thinking coverage includes: algorithms debugging sequential instructions binary decomposition data representation in images For more examples of unplugged and unplugged to digital resources check out out ByteEd TES store or follow us on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ByteEd.NZ or Twitter @ByteEd_NZ
