In this activity, students will brainstorm and develop their idea for a computer system they want to create using their prior learning of the programming components.
- Instruct students to locate their Project Planning page in their science journal:
- Brainstorm ideas for a computer system where students include their learning from previous lessons
- Explain the purpose of their original program where all components of prior learning will be evident
- Discuss with students that they will use Code Jumper to develop their program based on their project plan found in their science journal.
- Explain to students that all components in the assessment checklist need to be included in their program
- Explain to students that they will begin using Code Jumper to develop their original program.
- Instruct students to utilize their assessment checklist as a guide to help them confirm they have included each component
- As students include each component, they will need to describe how it is used in their original program.
Review and Debugging:
- Review with students the concept of debugging and the process they will go through to identify “bugs” in their original programs
- Instruct students to take time to review their original program and determine if there are “bugs” that need to be solved.
- Explain to students that they will continue to review their original program until they feel they are ready to present their program to the teacher.
- Prior to their project presentation, students will need to review their own original program using the project assessment rubric.
Demonstration of learning
- When students have created their original program and gone through the process of reviewing and debugging, they are ready to show their program to the teacher.
- Students will provide their teacher with the project assessment rubric to use while evaluating their original program using Code Jumper.
- As students finish their project presentation, they will turn in their computer science journal to their teacher.
