Using Code.org and their amazing 'express courses', I assembled a 3 lesson sequence of practical sessions allowing students to sample all the key fundamentals of coding. Lesson 1 covered ONE element from Sequencing and ONE from Loops. Lesson 2 covered ONE element from Conditions and another ONE from Functions. Finally, Lesson 3 covered ONE element from Variables and Sprites.

At the end of each lesson I awarded students who completed their two tutorials a certificate. Bronze for Lesson 1, Silver for Lesson 2 and Gold for Lesson 3!

The certificates are included below for FREE DOWNLOAD and are downloaded originally from the awesome SLIDESMANIA. The coding elements are linked throughout this post. Donations for this idea are welcome on the link below.
