Unplugged Coding: Activities, Tips, Games, & More

Unplugged coding is teaching coding concepts without using devices. It is learning how to code without writing lines of code. When coding unplugged, students use their knowledge to work on computational challenges that will help them understand the concepts they’ll use in coding projects. 
Math puzzles are a great way to make learning math more enjoyable for your students.
