In this lesson, students will play a fraction matching game and answer questions by dragging the cheese Actor to the given fraction that will make it equal to “1.” Next, students will follow a step-by-step tutorial in the DIY (do-it-yourself) module to create their own version of the matching game they just played. They will change the background and costumes, make the cheese Actor draggable, and make the Actors react to incorrect matches. If students finish early, ask them to look at the bonus section in step 7/7 of the tutorial, which encourages them to review the given code blocks and analyze two different ways to detect collision.
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions involving adding fractions. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., input/output, events, loops, conditions, motion, basic math, costume handling, visibility) while creating a fraction matching game.
