Lesson 3 Selection

Curriculum > KS3 > Unit > Lesson

The focus of this lesson is to introduce learners to the concept of selection statements and how they can be used to control the flow of a program. The lesson starts with activities that allow the learners to understand expressions that evaluate to ‘true’ or ‘false’. This will be followed by a PRIMM activity using another version of the ‘Chat with Big Ed’ program from last lesson, this time using selection (If statements). The lesson will finish with a Parson’s Problem that requires the learners to rearrange code to form a working program.

Learning objectives

  • Define a condition as an expression that will be evaluated as either true or false
  • Identify that selection uses conditions to control the flow of a sequence
  • Identify where selection statements can be used in a program
  • Modify a program to include selection
