Conditionals - unplugged activity

  • 0:06 - 0:13
    This activity is called coding with cards
    and it's great for any age. Like you learned
  • 0:13 - 0:19
    with the if statements in earlier lessons,
    during Blockly, if statements have a piece
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    about them you have to evaluate to find out
    if it's true or false. That's the conditional
  • 0:24 - 0:30
    and it can be used in lots of different ways.
    We take advantage of that by creating programs
  • 0:30 - 0:37
    on paper that you run using a random draw
    of playing cards. You might have an if statement
  • 0:37 - 0:45
    that says something like if the card you draw
    is greater than 8, you get a point. Otherwise,
  • 0:45 - 0:57
    your opponent gets a point. You can make it
    as simple or as complicated as you feel comfortable.
