Description:

This website was developed by a father and his two daughters as they explored computer programming for kids using the Microworlds Project Builder, which seemed to provide the most engaging learning environment for the children. The curriculum that this father followed with his daughters began with using point-and-click drawing tools and advanced into programming movement, providing his 4-year-old daughter with an introduction to animation. The website takes the reader through a story about how they got started on programming and provides images to help explain how the Microworlds Project Builder programming tools work and what kids are able to do with them. Although the website is very much an advertisement for the software, which can be purchased from the author, the lesson plans provide some basic information on programming for kids. Although most of the documents at the site were produced in 2001, the author is working on a set of lessons called "Learning to Program for Beginners" aimed at beginners over 12 and teachers. Using an online form, visitors can request to be notified when that publication is ready.
