A short scheme of work consisting of 10 (approximately one hour) lesson plans, and some assessment tasks. The aim is to introduce children (and teachers) to the micro:bit. No previous technical or coding knowledge is required. This is a great resource for Computing and STEAM teachers. This scheme of work is aimed at the technophobe and gives lots of practical advice on getting started with physical computing for the complete beginner.
Level: Years 5 and/or 6
Duration: 12 one hour sessions (10 lessons and 2 assessment tasks) but no need to cover them all.
Teaches: A simple introduction to the micro:bit, the online MakeCode editor, physical computing (the connection of electrical components) all delivered in a very easy and user friendly way.
