Hi everyone,
This week we celebrate Earth Day and I thought it would be fun for all of you to work on designing a Plant a Tree game in Tynker coding.

Code a Tree Planting Project

Tynker

In this lesson, advanced-level coders will follow a step-by-step tutorial where they will create a tree planting game, because trees lower the carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere. Additionally, students are encouraged to customize their project by drawing their own gardening tools, tree animations, and backgrounds! By the end of this lesson, you should have combined creativity and coding concepts such as, simple loops, simple/advanced costume handling, simple drawing, and cloning while reinforcing environmental awareness.

Welcome to Earth Day, April 20  Help spread environmental awareness and stewardship by planning a fun, educational Earth Day experience.   Trees lower the carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere. Additionally, I encourage you  to customize your project by drawing your own gardening tools, tree animations, and backgrounds! ​How to play:​ Students will need to click (web)/ tap(mobile) on the Stage to plant trees.

Activity Overview

Objectives:
●Apply coding concepts such as simple loops, simple/advanced costume handling, simple drawing, and cloning to program different Actors
●Use code blocks to create a tree planting game

Enjoy this project using your creative and critical thinking skills! This is an independent learning experience for each of you.  Due to volume, it is not necessary for you to send me your projects.  Share them with your family, because of the volume of space required on your devices you do NOT need to send your projects to me.  Spend your computer time designing your game!  It’s educational and fun!
