Language Arts Ideas for CS Ed Week


Computer Science Education Week is not just for Math and Science! Other subjects can participate, too! The Google CS First site provides a series of videos to walk students through the process of creating an animated story using Scratch. Students begin with an Adventure on the High Seas Activity to build skills needed to then write their own story. This has relevance to students in language arts, social studies, and foreign language. Check it out!
