Explore connections between computing and patterns in nature

About this event

This workshop is intended to prepare you to teach our Speed Stacker OR Coding a Growth Mindset lesson plan. Teach it during CLC Week (Dec. 6-10) to join thousands of educators across Canada in a national teach-along that will awaken your students’ imaginations, ambitions and wonder.

Unplugged activities are lessons that teach computational thinking skills through exploration and play. These activities are highly collaborative and designed to be run easily, without much preparation or supplies.

In this workshop, we’ll explore two unplugged lesson plans, then tinker with some ‘plugged’ extensions together. We’ll identify the relationships between patterning and computational thinking by connecting key mathematical concepts - like cores, attributes, rules, and terms - to computer science practices. We’ll also look at strategies for writing efficient patterning algorithms using materials that get learners away from screens, and even outdoors in nature!

This session may be applied to Kindergarten to grade 3.

Who is this for?

Our Teachers Learning Code workshop has been designed for primary and middle school teachers with little to no coding experience to be able to teach coding fundamentals to their students. 


None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
