Info about our 3rd annual #HourOfCode buddies activity at @The_School. #kidscancode #csedweek

Today is the third annual Hour of Code buddies activity at The School at Columbia University. Older students are partnered with younger students for consecutive years at our K-8 with the goal of forging long-lasting community bonds (K/4, 1/5, 2/6, 3/7 with Grade 8 floating when needed).

Here are two useful resources for planning an Hour of Code in your classroom or school:
1. A Beginner’s Guide to Bringing Coding Into the Classroom via EdSurge.
2. Hour of Code Suggestions by Grade Level by Jacqui Murray. (Many thanks to @AliceBarr for tweeting about Jacqui’s awesome post!)

Dylan Ryder and I examined some of the available Hour of Code activities and crafted the following planning document for today’s activity:
