The Computer Science Office in Loudoun County Public Schools has developed this curriculum integration document to support the integration of the 2017 Virginia Computer Science Standards into core subject areas and beyond. Each CS standard was aligned to up to 3 grade level standards that made natural correlations.Additionally, many activities and resources were included to each standard to support the introduction and integration of the standard. For each of the six strands of the Computer Science Standards of Learning: Computing Systems, Networks and the Internet, Cybersecurity, Data and Analysis, Algorithms and Programming, and Impacts of Computing, we have included tiered support called "Fuel", "Spark", and "Ignite". The "Fuel" is provided to build teacher capacity and students' understanding in understanding the CS SOL. The "Spark" provides a Computer Science integrated experience into a core or speciality subject SOL. The "Ignite" section is where teachers in Loudoun County have the opportunity to share authentic learning experiences and lessons in our LCPS Computer Science Lesson Repository.This document was created as part of the Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline which is partly funded through a GOVA and DHCD grant in partnership with Chesapeake Public Schools, Loudoun County Public Schools, and the Loudoun Education Foundation.

Algorithm Picture Lesson
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating

The goal of this activity is to build critical thinking skills and excitement for Computer Science / Computational Thinking, while laying a foundation of fundamental programming concepts. By scaffolding basic concepts like sequencing and algorithms in an unplugged activity, students who are intimidated by computers can still build a foundation of understanding. In this lesson, students will learn how to develop an algorithm and encode it into a program.By "programming" one another to draw pictures, students experience some of the core concepts of programming in a fun and accessible way. The class will start by having students view a video of a simple program demonstrating how to develop instructions for building a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Students will start with simple shapes, and progress to the coding of a specific drawing that other students will then try to replicate (“running the program”). If there is a desire to have a more of a Math slant on the lesson, the drawing could take place on graph paper. Students would then use the coordinates to complete the drawing.
