Lakeview Fifth Graders Code Animations with Hopscotch

This afternoon in the AT&T Classroom the Lakeview fifth graders had another coding lesson and were introduced to Hopscotch, an iOS app designed to teach students the basic elements of coding and programming. By manipulating simple drag and drop blocks, Hopscotch introduces young children to fundamental programming concepts such as sequencing, abstraction, values and conditionals. The app allows children to sequence code to create simple games, animations, and art.  Today the students worked with the app first as a group to progress through the app’s introductory commands and then worked individually through the app's levels to create increasingly more complex movements, animations and games.
