## Turtle Pond

Guide a turtle to a pond using computer commands.

Check the box for **Path 1** or **Path 2** and click **Draw** to see sample paths. To erase a path, press **Clear**.

To create a path of your own, use the sliders to adjust the length or angle, and then press the **Forward**, **Back**, or **Turn** buttons to enter a sequence of commands. Click **Draw** to see your path. If the path did not get the turtle to the pond, add more commands.

Enter a sequence of commands to help the turtle get to the pond. The turtle will then move along a path according to your instructions.

- How far does your turtle travel to get to the pond?
- Can you find a shorter path to the pond?
- How long is the shortest path to the pond?

Set forward = 5, back = 7, right turn = 30, and left turn = 75. Using only these possible moves, guide the turtle to the pond. Try the same activity using different values for the four moves.
