SMS Participates in the National Hour of Code
On Wednesday, Dec. 11th, the 6th grade Loons team celebrated Computer Science Education Week by teaching our 6th graders the basics of writing computer code. We started this effort by bringing the Loons team together in the cafeteria to create interactive holiday cards by writing code using a program called Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/hoc/) Each student programmed a character to perform very specific tasks. For extra credit in social studies, students were encouraged to create a holiday card that would be from the country they are researching for english/social studies.
Later in the week, Ms. Bishop, our Library Media Specialist, met with the other two 6th grade teams to teach them the same skills. Please view the holiday cards by clicking here.
