As time went on, we found that it would be beneficial and extremely efficient to integrate a Core Concepts curriculum into our camp lesson plans. We noticed that with each topic we offered in camp — Alice, StarLogo, NXT Robotics, etc. — we could tie in all individual lesson plans with a strong unifying foundation called Core Concepts! These concepts are taught day by day and is provided in presentation format: bit.ly/2012campcoreconceptsTo review the concepts that we have taught our students and to gauge their understanding, we have developed a three-part plan:
- Review Sheet – Instructors and students complete a fill-in-the-blank worksheet (approx. 10 minutes)
- Core Concept Posters – Students divide into teams and create posters for each of the core concept categories (approx. 30 minutes)
- Jeopardy – Students divide into teams and battle to become Jeopardy! champions (approx. 60 minutes)
