Provide students with App Inventor starter code they can modify and build on so they have an opportunity to play around in App Inventor without becoming overwhelmed by starting from scratch.

  • Give students a starter app in App Inventor.
    • Use this MoleMash tutorial from App Inventor to create starter code for your students for a Whac-a-Mole game app.
  • Provide explicit extension activities, such as making the mole move faster or creating more levels.
      • Some examples activities include:
          1. Modify parameters in the code.
          2. Add specific features to the code.
          3. Add personalized details such as pictures and colors.
