We’ve broken our “Text” talk-throughs into its own module, and along with that, we’ve created 2 challenges to test how well students can use text commands and concatenate strings together:
- Challenge: My Favorite Foods: The first text challenge, it asks them to list their favorite foods, properly spaced out. Later, once we cover arrays, I plan to re-visit this challenge and show them how much better it is with arrays.
- Challenge: Mouse Tracker: This comes after a talk-through where we introduce the “strings” term, show how to save a string into a variable, and animate it on the string. This challenge will have them doing something very similar and quite useful, showing the current x and y next to the mouse position.
