By programming one another to draw pictures, students will begin to understand what programming is really about. The class will begin by students instructing each other to colour squares in on graph paper in an effort to reproduce an existing picture. If there’s time, the lesson can conclude with images that the students create themselves.

Students will:

• Understand the difficulty of translating real problems into programs • Learn that ideas may feel clear to them, and still be misinterpreted by a computer • Realize the need for formal programming structures like loops and functions
