Lexington Three students participate in "Hour of Code" activities

Batesburg-Leesville, SC - December 4th through 10th marked National Computer Science Education Week and as a result, students in classrooms across the state, nation and world participated in what is known as the “Hour of Code” program. During “Hour of Code,” students are exposed to a variety of coding opportunities designed to engage novice coders, as well as advanced coders. Due to the fact that MAPS testing was also going on in Lexington Three schools, the district expanded “Hour of Code” activities to last two weeks and go through December 15th

.

Students in all four of the district’s schools participated in “Hour of Code” activities and even had the opportunity to collaborate with students from neighboring schools! For example, many B-L High School students traveled to B-L Primary School to code with students in the media center. In addition, B-L Middle School students traveled to B-L Elementary School to participate in coding Makerspaces in the library. BLMS and BLHS also hosted Coding Playgrounds for their students. The Coding Playgrounds were student-led and allowed students to experiment with many different coding platforms.

By using educational tools like Puzzlets, Ozobots, Dot and Dash, OSMO, code.org, Scratch, Cubetto, Legos and a variety of unplugged coding activities, Lexington Three students learned invaluable critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills all while having lots of fun during the Hour of Code.
