Lesson 1

Learning Intention

To understand how to create a safe password.

Lesson Information

Watch Password Rap: 

A password should be 8 characters long and a combination of both letters and numbers.  It is also a good idea to include a capital letter and a symbol.

  • Using old catalogues, newspapers or magazines, cut out a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols to create 5 different passwords (or write them out with different and creative styles of letters and colours ).

Reflection

How do you know the passwords you created are ‘safe’?

Lesson 2

Learning Intention

To develop algorithms by stacking blocks together.

Lesson Information

With an iPad or laptop, go to www.code.org using Google Chrome or Safari. (Internet Explorer does not work well with code.org)

Class Code:

2B: DGLHDK

2D: BWJBDZ

2F: XFGWZG

Enter your class code, click on your name and then your secret picture.

Lesson 4: Programming with Angry Birds

Have a go at completing these tasks to help the birds get to the pig. 

Remember when we say ‘turn left or right’, we’re giving directions from the bird’s point of view (pretend to be the bird).

2A, 2C, 2E: You are welcome to sign in and continue the activities from last semester in Code.org if you wish! 

Lesson 3: Debugging in Maze

In these tasks you will find puzzles that have been solved incorrectly. You will need to go through each step of the code to find errors. This could include missing blocks, incorrect loops, extra blocks and blocks that are out of order.

Debugging can get really frustrating at times. Remember to take your time and go through it one step at a time.

Reflection

Was there anything that was tricky? 

What would you do to help someone else that found it hard?
