Student Instructions

Welcome to Monster Town!🧞‍♀️😷 Today, you're going to write code to create and run your own simulation of the virus outbreak at Monster Town. A simulation is a computer model of a process or system. Learn to code and make predictions about what will happen to the neighbors of Monster Town. How quickly will the virus spread? Will everyone get sick? How will face masks help? When you're finished, share your simulation with others. Share your message about what you think we can do to help keep others healthy when a virus comes to town. Create a poster, information page or short video and add it to your response at the end. Go to seesaw and add response to your journal. For each lesson add a few screenshots to your page as you try to solve the coding problem. include the lesson name and code on the page. I have created an example on page #1.
