In this lesson, students will play a quiz game and answer questions about telling time. Next, students will follow a step-by-step tutorial in the DIY (do-it-yourself) module to create their own version of the project. They will add sound, use variables, program the clock hand Actors to move, and program the Stage to ask questions about time and react to answers. Note: Variables are an important part of keeping track of a game’s state. For example, if a student wants to program their game to check if a player has finished doing something, use variables!
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions involving telling time. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., sound playing, costume handling, messaging, basic math, direction and turning, conditionals, variables) while creating a telling time quiz game.
