Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Turtle

Description: 

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.
