Computational Thinking Escape Room

Computational Thinking Escape Room

(6)
This highly interactive lesson that requires the pupils to work in teams and use computational thinking skills to solve a range of puzzles. This activity perfect for pupils about to learn Python programming and you want to show the importance of computational thinking skills. This resource was shortlisted for the Teach Secondary Awards, a very rare honor for an independent resource creator. You can find out more here. Your class need to work together to escape a locked laboratory in a spaceship and start the engines to avoid being sucked into a black hole by completing different challenges which will use a variety of computational thinking skills. They are given most of the lesson to work together and at the end of the lesson, time is dedicated to discuss the computational thinking skills they used during the activity. This gives them a practical application for the computational thinking theory rather than using the tired old “making a jam sandwich” or “getting up in the morning” scenarios which are commonly used. This activity is not a handout driven escape room, it involves using an interactive PowerPoint presentation and physical tasks that moves away from pupils filling in yet another worksheet, to working together in a team to solve interesting and challenging puzzles. Pupils enjoy the lesson and are fully engaged whilst developing the key computational thinking skills of decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction and algorithms. Please note: This lesson does require teachers to prepare some props beforehand and it is highly recommended the teacher reads through the teacher’s instructions and creates the props well before they want to use the lesson. Also please note that this resource does not work with Google Slides. Written primarily for key stage 3, this activity can be used in a variety of situations: Introducing pupils to computational thinking skills before they are introduced to a text-based programming language Used as an end of term fun lesson which still has an education element A fun activity to use on a year 6 transition day Allow your new year 7s to get to know their new classmates and grow team sprit Helping a reluctant class see the benefits of learning programming skills . What are you waiting for? Download this interactive escape room NOW, to help students learn about computational thinking skills in a fun and memorable lesson they will love and remember.
The Witch's Lair – A Sorting Algorithms Escape Room

The Witch's Lair – A Sorting Algorithms Escape Room

(0)
This has got to be one of the most unusual and fun ways of introducing your students to the delights of the bubble, insert and merge sorting algorithms. Even if your exam board only teaches two of these sorting algorithms its still worth getting this activity and teaching all three as it is just so much fun! Using an escape room activity that involves a witch and a goblin (who doesn’t want that?) your students will learn the basics of how these three algorithms work. This is a student lead interactive escape room activity that is ideal for social distancing and does not require any student computers and they can remain at their individual desks and yet they will still be working together. The entire activity will last a single lesson. Your role it to not do a lot and put the emphasis on your students working together. Early on you will be turned into a goblin! Sorry (not really sorry) so you may want to practice your goblin roar for when its called on. Students, therefor, cannot rely on you to help them (because you’ll be a goblin) and they’ll have to work together (either as a whole class or in smaller teams if you prefer) to try and solve all the riddles in their “spell books” for themselves. The main activity is introduced via a whole class PowerPoint presentation which includes videos giving the students vital instructions and helping them if necessary and each pupil is given a printout of the spell book which contains all the challenges. This escape room style activity gives your students a great introduction to the three sorting algorithms (bubble sort, insert sort and merge sort) and will certainly help give your students a boost at the start of learning this topic. Suitable for higher KS3 classes and GCSE Computer Science classes.

Taking over a new year 10 GCSE computer science class? Wanting to find out your current classes Python programming skills? This resource contains a list of practical Python programming challenges which test key aspects of the KS3 national curriculum for text-based programming language. Pupils are tested on: Mathematical operators Data types Dealing with strings Loops If statements Logical operators Random numbers Data structures (lists) and Sub programs The pupils are given a worksheet which contains 11 Python programming challenges. They need to work through them attempting the programs and sections they can. If they don’t know how to do something then ask them to move on and try to complete as much of the challenges as they can. This allows you to find out the gaps in their current knowledge. The results are then entered into a an Excel spreadsheet using a simple system of 0 (not met the criteria) or 1 (met the criteria) that is then converted into a list showing you the pupils current understanding displayed as “Secure” or “Developing”. You can then use this to help you plan future lessons to fill the gaps in their skills. This practical assessment can be used at the end of Key Stage 3 to help you and pupils when selecting their options or it can be used at the start of their GCSE to assess which areas need to be recapped. This resource also includes the completed Python programs for all the challenges allowing you to see a possible answer for each challenge making this easier for non-specialists and NQTs who want to have a little more assistance as they build their confidence in Python programming.
