Introduction to Pseudocode

A fun way of introducing pseudocode with MINIONS :)

This set of resources I have used as an introduction to pseudo code and how the sequence of instructions would look to move my minion Stuart around the game squares and collect bananas.

I have included the extension sheet, scaffolding sheet, workbook and PowerPoint with interactive animation to show movement.

I have also included the lesson plan I created and also the cards to cut out for the one task on organising instructions.

I would use this with year 7 as a secondary school teacher but could be introduced lower down as it works on the concept and can be easily developed using physical movement etc.

Feedback would be appreciated - Thank you
