Well, just look at what Disney has created for all of us to use with Hour of Code this year!
Our students can learn how to code with the newest Disney characters from Moana through the amazing partnership Disney has with Code.org.
They will love heading into Moana's world as they work through 19 lessons as they learn how to code.
As Code.org states,
The story of the “Moana: Wayfinding with Code” tutorial centers around Moana and Maui as they sail through unknown territory across the ocean. As students follow Moana and Maui’s travels, they learn basic coding commands that help steer the boat. Along the way, students are introduced to conditionals, sequences and loops while they master the art of navigation. When Moana and Maui are suddenly attacked by the Kakamora – coconut-clad warriors—they must use their coding skills to dodge their pirate projectiles and penetrate their defenses.
The “Moana: Wayfinding with Code” tutorial is available in more than 180 countries and 23 languages, including Samoan Polynesian. Thank you to Disney for helping us give children all over the world the opportunity to learn the basics of coding.
You can find Moana's lesson here and...their coding site here.
Hour of Code Toolkit, which is a wonderful place to layout your entire Hour of Code event.
register your Disney Hour of Code Event here from the website and also find these materials on Code.org too.
Have fun.....I can't wait to see how your students learn to code with a little help from Disney!
