Code an April Fools’ Day Prank!

For April Fools’ Day, your students can create their own pranks using coding! They’ll follow step-by-step instructions to create what seems like a simple game – but there’s a surprising twist at the end. When they’re done, students can show off their creations to friends and see their reactions!
