The only way to learn a new programming language is by writing programs in it.
Programming is closer to carpentry and art. It couples the excitement and satisfaction of constructing something with an artistic sense of refinement in making that thing beautiful in its expression. In this particular activity students of class 4 A learned about making shapes with the help of LOGO commands like FD, RT, LT, BK , REPEAT etc. Students also understood the working of turtle. Turtle graphics is a simple and powerful set of commands used to manipulate a screen object called a turtle. Initially student wrote eight LOGO commands to draw one square but after learning the purpose and function of REPEAT command that has helped in reducing so many primitives. Computers are good at doing the same thing over and over again. That’s what a loop is – the same thing over and over, usually a set of instructions, like what you’ve used in a REPEAT command. Students learn how to draw shapes like polygons ,circles and curves also. Everyone enjoyed the activity as the shapes they are making on the paper can be made on screen by giving commands to turtle which is similar to as robot. Thereby saving pen, paper and time.
Objective- To make student aware about how to give instructions to a turtle ,how to make shapes, use of REPEAT command and its advantage.
Let us get to know about shapes drawn by LOGO command well explained by the students of class 4 A
