SC 2019 Week 4 Adventures Group 5 Update

Computers are more than just games and files. It all begins with the binary number system which we learned includes two numbers 0 & 1. We wrote our names using the binary number system. Each student made secret decoders which were used to write “secret messages” to our friends. Everyone designed their own model which included the key components of a computer.Together we read the following books to learn more about computers including: The History of the Computer by Elizabeth Raum, How a Computer Is Made by Sam Aloian, Kids Get Coding Coding, Bugs, and Fixes by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale, Coding with Blockly by Amber Lovett, Grace Hopper Queen of Computer Coding by Laurie Wallmark, Virtual-Reality Headsets by Valerie Bodden, and Kids Get Coding Online Safety For Coders by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale.
