Interactive ways to teach programming logic

Recommended Posts

So, I have to teach kids how to program for my job 10-12 years old.  I am having a tough time coming up with some interactive ways to teach them.. They can be as wacky as possible and can take place inside or outside..

 

(interactive as in physical presentation, not on pc)

 

 

Topics:

 

variables

conditionals

loops

functions

classes/objects

Remember that its important to know your audience. Your topics should be tied into things that all of the kids(or most) can relate to. For example: you can explain conditionals by asking them "If its really snowy outside where do we have recess." They will probably respond with "inside" to which you can show them how they just made an if statement.... if it is snowy outside -> recess is inside....if it is not snowy outside -> recess is outside.
