If students were given a choice for the devices, hardware & software being used, this lesson would align with K2.CS.01, K2.CS.02, K2.CS.03, 35.CS.01 & 35.CS.02.

Students can gather data on how much they spend on their predator, and students can determine at the end of the competition to look at the money spent vs. how far the predator advance.

Accessibility: Very Weak (0)

Technology and instructions do not inform different learners on how to work said technology nor is there a link to obtain said technology. Not all may have access to technology needed.
