Rabbids Coding introduces learners of all ages to the basics of programming and algorithmic logic through a series of fun, increasingly challenging, levels set within the chaotic Rabbids universe. The free game will now benefit from a series of brand-new resources linking the core concepts explored in the game to the UK National Curriculum for Computing, as well as additional cross-curricular “Unplugged” activities which do not require any technology to deliver, and a Parent’s Pack to support learning at home.

The resources launched today also include a Teachers’ Guide, Curriculum Maps (covering Key Stages 1-3), and a selection of worksheets.

Rabbids Coding was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and spearheaded by Game Developer Anthony Kozak in Montréal Saint Laurent. Originally released in 2019, this new suite of resources has been developed to make the game as accessible as possible and to help busy teachers to incorporate it into their curriculum.

This led the Ubisoft team to collaborate with Digital Schoolhouse to create this range of resources and lesson plans, as well as running initial classroom testing. The Coronavirus pandemic, and an increased focus on home learning, also prompted the creation of the Parents’ Pack. Digital Schoolhouse will also use the resources to develop a series of workshops for teachers and young people to make the most out of the resources.

Shahneila Saeed, director for Digital Schoolhouse said:

“It is not often a simple-to-play game comes along that so seamlessly combines great design with robust educational practice. It’s a rare combination; and one that Ubisoft has perfected well. While the work we carried out helps to embed this game within classrooms across the UK; the skills and concepts developed apply equally to schools and children across the globe.”
