Teaching Coding, Part 6

We spent most of yesterday’s class sharing each others’ games. The girls came up with some very entertaining ones. For example, this one made use of Robert Frost’s famous poem, The Road Not Taken:

Roads

In this game, a tardy student has to avoid getting caught by the principal!

School

Another one reads like an interactive novel, with the user deciding if the protagonist is male or female, if a character has a key to a mysterious trunk, etc. Her code fills eleven pages when it’s pasted into Word!

In the next class, we are going to analyze our final Python program, Hangman. This program introduces ASCII art, lists, for loops, and else-if statements.
