MicroWorld is a computer language designed to engage students in problem solving situations. The real power of teaching LOGO is that it is totally student centered learning.
The logical and problem solving skills learned are of great importance in all subject fields. Students at this age are just beginning to mold their analytical and abstract thinking skills. LOGO has been designed for the middle school learner and therefore many students excel when challenged by programming in LOGO. To learn more about LOGO see LCSI’s home page.
The following is a list of materials I have used in the past. See the links at the top or bottom for the games (assignments) my classes now use.
