Orientation Activity

 
This activity sheet orients the beginner StarLogo TNG user to the interface and teaches basic skills, including a step-by-step tutorial on creating a  small program. The activity includes most of the information in the quick start guide and goes beyond the guide. The activity is geared towards middle and high school students, and can be completed in two class periods of about 1.5 hours of class time. The lesson plan details the skills introduced, and provides additional instructions. There is also an optional skit to introduce driver / navigator roles, which is a strategy for paired programming.
