This week my students were assigned the task of creating a device that included a program for their Micro:bits that used some type of counting. Duct tape wallets were very popular, but there were many other ideas inclusing, scorekeepers, magic eight balls, and pedometers! Check out one student sharing her wallet:

This week we focused on variables and constants. We talked about variables and constants in our own life: meals, schedules, etc. Next, we played Rock, Paper, Scissors and each team kept track of their scores and rounds on paper. We discussed the variables and constants in the game. Then we worked on creating scorekeepers with our Micro:bits using variables for each player and score...so much fun! The kids can't wait to create their own projects using variables for counting tomorrow!
