This week in technology, we are learning how to make a game using Bloxels. Bloxels is a game where you can create your own personal game using tiny cubes. It is sometimes a little bit challenging because if you want to jump and there is something like fire next to a power up or just a patch of grass you have to find a better way to get there. My favorite part about it is that you can create almost anything you want. You just have to be creative. I learned that if you shoot at a certain block you can get a power up like a bomb, but if you don't have enough yellow coin blocks you can't use the advantage. When you first create the game you design it on a plastic grid. Then, you scan it with the Bloxels app, and there it is when you play the game!

We have learned how to code. We learned to do conditionals. Conditionals are statements that refer to coding. If/else are the words that we use to make up a conditional statement. We created card games using conditional statements. Today we made robots and learned about variables. A variable is something that can change and is a place holder for information.

In 5th Grade technology we have been working on learning about coding and the history of video games. We have also been learning about programming robots. Right now we are making our own algorithms (al-go-ri-thms). Algorithms are a series of instructions that get a specific task done. Take the morning, for example. In the morning, you wake up, get dressed, brush your teeth, comb your hair, and eat breakfast. That was an algorithm.
