Algorithms Years 1–2
At this level, students follow and describe algorithms involving a sequence of steps, branching (decisions) and iteration (repetition).
First to finish
Compare algorithms designed to complete the same task, and evaluate each for efficiency.
Understanding algorithms and the smiley face biscuit challenge (Years F-2)
This resource explores some ideas for following algorithms including a smiley face biscuit visual algorithm challenge.
Sequencing | Lesson 3 | Camp Coding Camp
Learn about how a computer needs to have correct step-by-step instructions with this fun sequencing coding song and computer video!
Dancing to teach coding and algorithms
Dancing is a great way to teach coding and algorithms. Algorithms are a set of instructions, just like the instructions for a dance.
Jam Sandwich Algorithm – Primary Computing Lesson Example
Use this as a guide to explore a computing lesson learning about algorithms and debugging using making a jam sandwich. You can change sandwich to rice paper rolls or other food preparation.
An intro to algorithms
This unit provides students with opportunities to explore algorithms through guided play, including hands-on, kinaesthetic and interactive learning experiences.
