Making Marty dance

  • This lesson will be all about trying to get Marty to carry out a dance by following a series of instructions.
  • Remember back to Scratch we did a dance program where the order of the instructions was very important.
  • Get into your teams and collect your team's Chromebook.
  • Find your Marty Robot and load up Marty Blocks.

The Dance-Off

  • Your team will compete in a dance-off with the other teams, so the better your dance the more chance you have of getting this week's point.
  • Each person will have to decide which team (not including their own) is the best. The results will be tallied and the winning team will get the point.
