CSS code programming
Educational Potential
In this game players learn to program CSS code. You can see a garden and there are carrots in the garden.

The goal is to water the carrots or to eliminate weed by using the right code. There are 28 levels and the levels get more complex from level to level. You get help from the beginning by giving you at each level an example for right coding. The students should take notes as it would be hard to remember these examples during the whole game.

The content is absolutely nonviolent.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
When learning about different programming languages this could be an example to try out. The students can do it within a lesson in school or they can try it at home on the PC.

There is nothing to download. You only need a browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari).

The students should be advised in the beginning to take notes during the game, as the hints will not be shown during all levels.

Skills and competences

Skills and competences acquired
The learner gets a deeper knowledge of using CSS code. This could also be an example for coding in general.

The skills can be assessed by using the knowledge to program another application within the lesson or by testing it with paper and pencil within a paper test.
Soft skills
Problem solving

Funny game to learn something about programming - seeing just in time the results of the own program code. I like it.
