This activity is a 7-lesson module. In each part, students have a shareable app by the end of each lesson. After the entire activity, students will write their own poem and investigate word choices for their poem. The primary learning goal is to understand how to use prompts and variables, code conditional statements, and create a poem generator app to share with friends. Students will also learn how to use code to illustrate the shift in mood or animate the introduction of new images in a poem. In lesson 7, students will take turns sharing their poem app with their peers and will be giving and getting feedback from peers.
