Students will: Type the words Hello World and/or draw the letters with paint tools. Make scripts using forward, turn and stamp tiles. Change the numbers in the forward and turn tiles. Experiment with controlling the patterns that form. Apply knowledge of angles such as 30, 45, 90, 180, and 360. Make a reset script with x, y, and heading tiles. Make new scripts replacing the forward tile with x increase by and decrease by functions. Compare patterns with these scripts and the earlier scripts. Discuss their favorite patterns and which script and numbers were used to make it. Observe patterns on nearby screens, estimate the turn by values. Add random number tiles to all of these scripts changing one tile for each experiment.
