One of the best coding resources for kids is We recommend introducing the kids to this site as the fun and engaging lessons will get them hooked on coding!

Pages 1-2: Algorithms

If you want to supplement this with hands on activities, have the girls go to and play lessons 1, 2, and 3. These will get the girls familiar with coding with scratch and understanding algorithms.

Page 3-4: Simplify Algorithms with Loops

Visit, complete the first Loops lesson to better understand how loops can simplify your algorithms.

Pages 5-6: Conditionals

This video explains about IF / ELSE statements in greater details with an example.

- Slap Jack  (card game)

- War (card game)

- Uno (condition is a Draw 4 card)

- Red Rover

Pages 7-9
