Logo Lesson Plans
A set of lesson plans to support whole-class teaching using SuperLogo on a single computer attached to a large display.
In this series of five lessons, Logo commands are introduced as pupils learn how to construct simple shapes. They proceed to investigate the rule for drawing any regular polygon. Next, they learn how to calculate the angles required to draw regular stars. Finally, procedures are introduced. Sheets for recording, and 'How to...' sheets on Logo skills, are linked to the plans.
The ideal teaching arrangement is a data projector, projecting onto a whiteboard or other writing surface. Using a pen, the teacher is able to model the shapes on the board, helping the children to visualise turtle moves.
Pupils could record work on paper during the lesson. All should have time on the computers before the next lesson.
