Activity (15 minutes)

Ask kids to pick their tools (pens/pencils and their algorithm) and sit evenly around a paper. Tell them you are the programmer and the kids are the computer.

When you say RUN, the computer turns on and each kid starts drawing their algorithm. When you say END each kid stops and moves one step to their right. You can also have music to signify the change.

It can all become a bit frenzied - which the kids love! As they work the instructions get faster and faster. Run the computer fast and slow. How does the art change?
