Achievements in accordance with the records of the core curriculum for primary school, grades I-III

Computer science education: the student solves tasks, puzzles, and riddles leading to the discovery of algorithms; uses a computer or other digital device and external devices to perform a task; associates the operation of a computer or other digital device with the effects of working with software; cooperates with students, exchanges ideas and experiences with them, using technology.

General Objectives

  • improving spatial orientation,
  • shaping the ability to create command sequences controlling an object,
  • developing the ability to use algorithms,
  • shaping the ability to recognize popular species of plants and animals.

Operational Objectives, Student

  • reads the code written using blocks with arrows,
  • determines the mutual position of objects on the plane,
  • determines directions and establishes the position of objects in relation to oneself, as well as in relation to other objects, distinguishes the left and right side,

Description of work with the application

Launch the "Find the Exit from the Garden" application. Tell the students that the inhabitants of the Gardener's Planet are engaged in growing plants. Thanks to them, there is no shortage of food in the Funn Galaxy. The gardens of the Gardener's Planet are often very extensive and easy to get lost in. Choose the board size suitable for your students. Analyze the code and help Ava find the way to the exit from the garden! Follow the blocks with arrows and indicate to Ava the place where the garden gate is located. Longer code sequences can be divided into stages of Ava's route, temporarily marking the finish line on the board. When you are sure of the solution, click "check".
