Codey Rocky: Do the Wave! (Grade 4-5)
In this lesson, students will learn how to use wait blocks within their code in order to create a wavelength move to mimic the movement of a wavelength of light and/or sound. Using the coding concept of wait, along with images, students will code Codey Rocky to bring this wave to life. Students will connect with another group to continue the wave along with others actions that are being displayed by Codey Rocky!
1. By the end of this lesson students will be able to describe what wait blocks are and how they work in the movement of a wavelength.
2. By the end of this lesson students will be able to program Codey Rocky using different sequences of code and displays in order to bring to life the real movement of a wavelength of sound and/or light.
