Hour of Code Gets Grinchy!

As a teacher, with the holidays approaching, I often spent hours trying to find activities for my students that were educational and motivating. This is no small feat during a season of distractions: the holidays coming and everything in their world changing, replete with decorations, parties, extended family visiting, gifts, schedule changes at school, more gifts, weather changes, and the looming winter break!


I was therefore excited today to see a new Hour of Code activity pop into my inbox. The students I work with love coding, and with the Grinch theme, it is a perfect activity to get students thinking about processes, coding, and problem solving—all with a holiday feel.
