In this lesson, students are introduced to the concept of Sequences and how they relate to everyday life. Students will play a game in which they must act like a robot and follow instructions to complete a task. Students will then take this understanding and convert it to a code in mBlock 5. Students will use their new knowledge to create their own animation in mBlock 5. Some sample projects can include growing a tree or taking a walk. Students will then present their projects to the class before a final wrap-up.
