Python Print Function


The Python print function outputs text in the Python shell. This is the first step in teaching kids how to think through coding. As kids write simple output statements they learn how to problem-solve one line at a time. This package gives you everything: student handouts, 7 PowerPoint lessons, 1 assessment and answer keys.

This is the first of 4 resources. It is intended for students with little or no background in computer programming. Concepts and skills have been broken down into short chunks. Students are given short code fragments to explore, followed by questions to consolidate their learning. Students are also asked to reflect on their learning and provided terminology to begin a programming dictionary.
