Writing in Code With Building Bricks
Have you ever wanted to make up your own code? In this class, you will use building bricks to make your own code. We will all write our names in code. What other messages will you write with your secret code?
In this class, students will learn the basic principles of making a code for communication purposes. They will make a key for their code as they create their own code for each letter of the alphabet using building blocks. Students will have the opportunity to share their code with the class and to tell us if they chose any certain brick for specific letters for certain reasons. Did you make the letter of your first name orange because you like to play basketball? Did you make the "t" green...
Please bring a building brick baseplate, many loose, colorful building bricks , a pencil or marker, and paper to class. I will post a printable in the classroom that students will be able to view and print before class. The form is an alphabet page with space to record their code, it would be handy to have it printed for class; however, I will guide students through making their own version of this form with their paper and pencil if they do not have a chance to print the form.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
