Hour of Code Activities and Resources

I originally posted the first half of this to the blog I run for one of my schools but I'm sharing it here too. Below it I've included additional lesson plans and resources for teachers as well.

Next week students at Albert Hill will take part in the global Hour of Code event as part of Computer Science Education Week to introduce them to computer science.

For students interested in pursuing it further on their own time I’ve put together a list of resources below.

Hour of Code - the original Hour of Code site.

Brain Pop Coding Games

Made w/ Code - Coding activities from Google.

Snap!- Drag and drop programming interface designed to help you learn how to program.

 - Series of educational games that teach programming.

Codester - Create your own dance moves with this coding application.
