Inspired by @mwclarkson asking for ideas yesterday on Twitter, I thought I’d put together a compilation of 10 mini programming projects I have used in the classroom. Each of them could be used with the language of your choice, although the resources I’ve linked to may contain information specific to the language I used and the year group I used the task with.
Disclaimer: All of the Python code has only been tested in 2.7.x and I occasionally refer to the Python list data structure as an array. Please don’t hate me.
If you use any of these resources and ideas or have any feedback for improvement, I’d love to hear from you either as a comment on here or via Twitter @codeboom
What is it… guess letters in a pre-defined random word until the entire word is guessed or the number of guesses allowed has been exceeded
