Turtle is a coding app that allows students to drag and drop command lines to create programs. The command lines all relate to a digital representation of a turtle on a grid. Every command will cause the turtle to do something different. Because it is drag and drop, the entry point for students is the visual interface of the turtle movements. Through exposure, they are able to begin to understand the coding language that informs these movements. Turtle encourages problem-solving, project design and creative expression.
