Activity : Build Your Own Pong Game
The goals of this activity include:
develop a greater fluency with computational concepts (conditionals, operators, data) and practices (experimenting and iterating, testing and debugging, reusing and remixing, abstracting and modularizing) by working on a self-directed maze game
Things to watch for
What to look for when reviewing their work
This game starts with a particular pattern for all games but encourages students to pursue various options.
Did they go beyond the base game to personalize it in some manner?
Does the finished game include conditionals, operators, and data?
