Educator Resources for Turtle Academy

In Turtle Academy, students are introduced to the popular programming language Logo. Developed as an educational tool in the 1960s, Logo is a graphic-based computer language that allows students to move a triangular “turtle” to create line graphics in predictable ways. As they successfully complete basic levels, students will encounter more and more complex Logo tasks and commands. Turtle Academy requires a fair amount of instructional reading, so we recommend that educators preview each level to ensure the accompanying informational texts are appropriate for your students.
