‘Spit-Not-So’ Computational Thinking Activity Resource for KS2/3 Computing

Key Stage

KS2, KS3

Age

Years 3-9

Subjects

In this activity you play a word game showing that “due to you computational thinking skills” you are brilliant at it.

You eventually show the class the secret, and in doing so illustrate a reason why graphical user interfaces are easier to use than command line interfaces and also why the choice of data structure is so important. Oh, and you also shed light on what computational thinking is all about.

Learn about:

  • data structures
  • computational thinking
  • human-computer interaction
