A mixture of different activities involving spreadsheets, research, presentation skills, algorithms and some programming.
1 – Lighthouses spreadsheet
What are spreadsheets – intro slides
There's a map of the lighthouses that can be used:
The tasks need the lighthouses spreadsheet.
Lighthouses spreadsheet – to download
Instruction sheet – to print
There's also a task to make a spreadsheet from scratch. It depends on how much time s available what it best to do here.
Making a Lighthouses Spreadsheet – to print
There are some general spreadsheet tasks as well should they be needed:
Guide to making a medals spreadsheet – to print
2 – Lighthouse research
Researching and presenting information in PowerPoint but doing it in an interesting way.
There's a set of open source images from Wikipedia/Geograph that can be used:
3 – Algorithms and sequencing
Moving to use Flowol (version 3 unfortunately) to create algorithms with the lighthouse mimic. General tasks first.
What are algorithms – intro slides
Tasks – writing a report
4 – Using Flowol
Basic use of the lighthouse mimic. Taking screenshots to add to the report as well.
5 – More advanced Flowol
Challenges leading to use of Subroutines and Variables.
Using variables – needs adding to
6 – A micro:bit lighthouse
Using a micro:bit to create a lighthouse.
This largely needs adding to, but here's a start.
