Video of My Turtle Blocks Creation

I was able to make my Turtle Blocks form a design through a pattern of steps, change colors, change noises (a frequency from high to low played every time a color changed)*, and add text. I learned that what is important isn't the end product (the flower design), but the process of how you created it. I worked on the skill of problem solving by determining how many pixels my icon should move, at what angle it should turn, where to place the text, etc. I did this through a process of trial and error. This lesson, of trial and error, can be applied to the classroom because a lot of students worry about making mistakes and ruining the final product; however, the only way we learn is through making mistakes.
