1. Have your computer and headphones ready - the lesson will begin as soon as you click the links below.
2. Primary students should start here with basic coding games.
Older students should pick one of the following tutorials:
- Star Wars: Building a Galaxy with Code
Help BB-8 find scrap metal to travel a galaxy far, far away.
- Minecraft Hour of Code
Use blocks of code to take Steve or Alex on an adventure through this Minecraft world.
- Frozen: Code with Anna and Elsa
Use your knowledge of angles to help Anna and Elsa ice skate in different patterns. (Note: This is a bit harder than the other options.)
- Angry Birds Maze
Help the Angry Bird find its way through the maze to catch the pig. Just watch out for TNT!
- Flappy Bird Game
Make a game by coding instructions for how Flappy Bird should move and when to end each level.
3. Remember, so much of coding is trying things out to see what each step does. If something doesn't work the way you want it to, reset and try something new!
4. Students who finish activity before the hour is up can either pick one of the other activities from above, or go to the Code.org Play Lab for more coding fun.
5. If you want to keep coding on your own after the Hour of Code, you can access these games and more from home for free. Just visit the Code Studio for courses of different lengths for you to explore.
