# Activity: Draw A Car

pencilcode.net

1. Before any big project, plan it with a pencil: here is a car. Pick a good starting point.

• What color do we want? For red: ` pen red`
• A circle has 360 degrees, so we can draw a wheel: ` rt 360,20`
```pen red
rt 360,20

```

2. Draw the next line.

• Which direction do we want to turn? To turn left: ` lt 90`
• How far do we want to move? Experiment with sizes: ` fd 60`
```pen red
rt 360,20
lt 90
fd 60
```

3. Turn and then draw the next part.

• Remember to turn the turtle in the direction we want.
• There are 360 degrees in a whole circle and 180 degrees in a half circle.
• If we draw 360 + 180 = 540 degrees, we will end up halfway around the circle again!
```pen red
rt 360,20
lt 90
fd 60
lt 90
rt 540,20
fd 10
rt 90,20
```

4. Continue on your own, figuring out angles and arcs to draw the rest of the car.

• 90 degrees make a quarter circle: that is exactly a square angle.
• 45 degrees make an eighth of a circle: that will give you a slope.
