In this lesson, students will watch an example of an Actor revealing the number of syllables in the word “examine,” then use code blocks to create a project that models how many syllables are in a word. Coding activities include programming the “speech” Actor to change costumes, using the “when actor clicked” block to send a message, and animating the Actor to move as it counts syllables. Students are provided the necessary visual assets (backgrounds, costumes, Actors) and code blocks in the DIY module.
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions that test their knowledge on how to divide a given word into syllables. Words mentioned in the quiz include "apple," "water," "examine," "cat," "scientist," "basket," "continent," and "remember." By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., messaging, costume handling, animation) while reinforcing syllables in a variety of words.
