Student Instructions

Hello Grade 3 coding machines! It's yet another year of HOUR of CODE. To celebrate Hour of Code this year we will be finishing this simple Seesaw Activity. I hope you're ready. Page 2: Coding is all about giving the right instructions in the right order to help your code function. Can you use 10 instructions to teach your robot friend from outer space to buy a bottle of cola in the convenience store? Choose the right steps from below and put them in order. Page 3: When we design a solution to solve a problem, we have to plan the steps and their order. The instruction must be specific for the code to run smoothly without failure. Write down the exact command for your route to reach the destination mentioned in the task after reading it carefully. Page 4: Design a map of your own by 1.) Add 2 new destination icons on the map along with the already present school and park. 2.) Write route in steps for example First you ___, then ____ and finally_____
