Students will: Draw a bug and script it to turn, go forward, and bounce. Copy the bug and find that the copies will have the original scripts. Learn and apply a vocabulary of quantity, locations, and time: top and bottom, directions (up, down, left, right), and concepts such as more than half, less than half, above the line, below the line, one minute, one second, half a minute/thirty seconds. Estimate when most/least insects are in one area of the screen stop the script, and count them. Add a clock from Supplies. Add a random number generator tile to a turn and/or forward tile and observe how the insect moves differently.
