Class IV Computer Science

Department:  Lower School

Class III Computer Science

Class IV students continue to build their coding skills in three units throughout the year using Code.org, Scratch, and LittleBits. Code.org continues to enhance the basic knowledge of coding terms and application of events, loops, conditionals, debugging, and more. Those skills learned in Code.org are applied even more in Scratch, where students build animations, games, or designs. LittleBits brings knowledge learned in Class III Science about simple circuits and integrates it with the coding skills they have gained to challenge students to build simple circuits and then code it to amazing things! Touch typing is taught and practiced in the classroom using Chromebooks. Google Suite applications such as Google Docs, Google slides, and Google Sites are used for writing stories, reports, and presenting research information.
