Focus on Coding and Literacy: Grades 4-6

Participants will learn how skills related to decomposition, abstraction, pattern recognition and algorithmic reasoning skills for children lead to the development of computational thinking. In the first activity, students learn about binary coding by collaboratively building a paper chain garland that represents a particular word. In the second activity, students learn how to give directions one step at a time to others to accomplish a specific task. Participating teachers will be provided with follow-up activities that they can do on their own with their students after the broadcasts.
