Hello all,

I hope you’re enjoying the snow day! Here’s an update on the digital media and technology curriculum for this month.

In the 5th grade, students will learn basic concepts from Computer Science such as sequences, loops, conditionals, debugging and variables. We will use games and puzzles from Course F of Code.org to teach students these concepts. At the end of the course, students will create their own projects and share them with the class.
