Activity : Debug It #4

Ninja Instructions | Mentor Notes


The goals of this activity include:

  • investigate the problem and find a solution to five debugging challenges
  • explore a range of concepts (including conditionals, operators, and data) through the practices of testing and debugging
  • develop a list of strategies for debugging projects

Things to watch for

  • Being able to read others' code is a valuable skill and is critical for being able to engage in the practices of reusing and remixing.
  • Students can explain their revisions by right-clicking on Scratch blocks to insert code comments.

What to look for when reviewing their work

  • Were students able to solve all five bugs? If not, how might we clarify the concepts expressed in the unsolved programs?
  • What different testing and debugging strategies did the student employ?
