Turtle Art

These past few lessons in Control Technology, we have been doing an activity on a program called Turtle Art which runs on the Sugar Operating System. The activity consisted of making shapes with codes and the Turtle being the guideline. The activity was challenging for me because I've never done any code editing programs such as the Turtle Art before and needed sometime until I eventually got used to the Turtle Art.

One of the parts that I struggled most with was understanding how to use the variables in Turtle Art to make shapes that contain its ration regardless of its size. My teacher and countless friends assisted me to thoroughly understand how variables were or can be used in Turtle Art, or other programs. I finally got the hang of it after a mind blowing 10 minutes and made a shape soon after with the use of variables, the following image represents what I made.

Here is the picture of the shape:

Here are the codes used to make the shape:


  1. Well done that you have blogged about a shape with variables. To obtain the bonus you need to include a commentary about how the variable work.

  2. This is great! I love the shape you came up with. Thank you.
