Mathematics: Geometry and Spatial Sense
  • Relate the names of the benchmark angles to their measures in degrees
Mathematics: Patterning and Algebra
  • Make predictions related to repeating geometric and numeric patterns
Knowledge of how to navigate with a web browser ability follow a self-directed tutorial.
These lessons provide opportunities for teachers and students to gather evidence through teacher, peer, and self-assessments; and learning goals and success criteria. See Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, Chapter 4 for more information.
  • Computer (PC, Mac, Chromebook or Linux) www.code.org
  • Success Experience Chart
  • Challenges Experience Chart
This is the minds on button.
  • Review success and challenges chart paper with students prior:
  • Review straight angle, right angle, half a right angle mathematical names, how to predict repeating patterns
  • Remind them they will be using that knowledge today
  • Let students know today’s activity is about having fun and identifying the successes and challenges they have.
This is the action button.
  • Assign or allow choice of student partners and remind them that today’s activity is about discovery (take chances, collaborate, enjoy!)
  • Have student navigate to Hour of Code (Frozen)
  • Students select Anna and Elsa (Frozen)
This is the consolidation button.
  • When students complete the activity add to the “successes” and “challenges” chart papers
  • Discuss the student’s contributions to the chart papers (allow time to discuss/share)
  • Share teacher observations
  • Students can work in partners or teams.
  • Provide choice of alternate coding apps on the iPad (e.g. Daisy the Dinosaur, Run Marco!)
