Flashcard algorithms

Lesson 1 of 5


7-11 yrs

In this ‘unplugged’ lesson pupils use flashcards to practice words learnt in another language. They consider the ‘responder’ and ‘shower’ roles of the people using the flashcards and write, test and debug algorithms for others to follow.

Key learning:

  • To know and understand what algorithms are
  • To write algorithms with clear instructions
  • To test and debug algorithms
