The Sorting network is a fun game that teaches computational thinking.  In this case a way to sort data, any data at all, whether it is numbers, letters of the alphabet, days of the week or anything that has an order.

We have a template (linked below) that you can use either online with 6 students accessing it, or you can use it as an individual activity
