Beaver Achiever was made with 1st and 2nd graders in mind. The minimal text throughout the course makes it the perfect solution for early readers. With its fun graphics, intuitive interface and easy-to-follow instructions, students will quickly catch on!
The entire course leverages block-based coding, which simplifies the process of computer programming. Rather than writing out the code, students will drag and drop coding blocks that represent code. This means that students won’t have to worry about their reading and writing skills in order to play.
The first activity is a prerequisite for the other two Beaver Achiever courses and consists of helping the beaver to build a dam in the lake. As students drop one log on top of the other, they will learn all about sequences and loops.
Length: 20 challenges
In the second activity, students will help the beaver build a home by the lake. Through using conditional loops, students will chop wooden planks in order to help this little achiever complete the last wall in the house.
Length: 15 challenges
This final activity takes place in a smoothie stand as the the beaver hosts a smoothie party and serves all types of smoothies. Students will use if/else blocks to determine which recipe to follow for different customers.
Length: 20 challenges
Enter a beaver's world where game-based coding is in the forefront.
Beaver Achiever is a course where 1st and 2nd graders use coding blocks to help CodeMonkey’s pal, the friendly beaver, complete different tasks in its habitat. Beaver Achiever follows the beaver’s natural setting and life in three activities that each focus on different coding concepts. Best of all – the course is fun, intuitive and easy to use!
Beaver Achiever does not teach a real programming language, rather it helps build computational thinking through the use of block-based programming.
There are a total of three short coding activities that each focus on a different coding concept.
Beaver Achiever is for ages 6-8.
Students will learn universal coding concepts such as sequences, loops and if/else conditions.
Yes, Coding Adventure is browser-based so it requires an active Internet connection.
Not yet, but it is coming out soon!
Nope! Beaver Achiever does not require any prior coding experience on either from either teachers or students.
Beaver Achiever is compatible with desktops/laptops, tablets and iPads.
