In this lesson, students will read a short description about a firefighter, then use code blocks to create an interactive report on a career of their choice. Coding activities include changing backgrounds, selecting an Actor, and adding “say” blocks to make the Actor explain the students’ chosen career. 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 on career concepts. Jobs mentioned in the quiz include firefighter, teacher, police officer, and doctor. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., simple events, costume handling, input/output) while exploring different careers.
