Hour of Code website states...
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in over 180 countries each year. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages.
I want to show you how fun and easy it is for you and your school community to participate in Hour of Code this year too.
How-To Guides on this page. This is where you will find how to hold a Hour of Code event for different reasons.
Next, look at how Code.org provides all of the resources and materials that you need.
One of my favorite resources to share with students during the Hour of Code are these fun stickers.
You can also print off certificates of participation to give your students after the Hour of Code activities are complete.
Next comes the really fun part!
Other tutorials include....
From the Code.org website, you can go to the Computer Science website that gives instructions and lesson plans for these activities.

One last place I want to point out is the Code Studio Showcase.
The week we celebrate Hour of Code will be here before we know it but don't forget to celebrate coding, computer science, engineering, and creativity all year long within libraries, schools, home and communities.
These activities and events can make a difference for our children now and in their future.
