Unit 3

  1. What other interesting examples of codes from history or the modern-day (digital or non-digital) can you find to inspire or support a lesson about encoding and decoding messages?

One example of codes from history I would love to teach my students is Morse Code. This is a different take on coding but still teaches children to associate different keys or sounds to letters in order to decipher. A group could write a message to another group in Morse Code using both dots and dashes written down and also with the sounds and then the second group would have to decode.

Here is a great video on Morse Code for kids. Morse Code Lesson for Kids: History, Alphabet & Facts – Educational Videos for Kids | Study.com
