# Python Turtle

Python Turtle

Below are a range of different codes that instruct python to draw a series of different shapes. For each code, copy it into python, run the code, then experiment with changing values, directions and colours (colors in python as it uses american english). Once you have finished save all the codes you have made in your area.

A simple star

import turtle
spiral = turtle.Turtle()
for i in range(20):
spiral.forward(i * 10)
spiral.right(144)
turtle.done()

Now try this pattern

import turtle

painter = turtle.Turtle()

painter.pencolor("blue")

for i in range(50):
painter.forward(50)
painter.left(123) # Let's go counterclockwise this time

painter.pencolor("red")
for i in range(50):
painter.forward(100)
painter.left(123)

turtle.done()

A Rainbow pattern

import turtle
colors = ['red', 'purple', 'blue', 'green', 'orange', 'yellow']
t = turtle.Pen()
turtle.bgcolor('black')
for x in range(360):
t.pencolor(colors[x%6])
t.width(x/100 + 1)
t.forward(x)
t.left(59)

Another pattern

from turtle import *
from random import randint # from the random module import the function randint
speed(0)
bgcolor('black')
x = 1
while x < 400:
r = randint(0,255) #makes variables r,g,b whose value is an integer,
g = randint(0,255) # which is between 0 and 255. It is random, and
b = randint(0,255) # changes every time the loop runs
colormode(255) # this is something that is irrelevant at this point
pencolor(r,g,b) # changes the color of the pen to the rgb coordinates
# obtained by the variables r, g, b changing each time
fd(50 + x)
rt(90.911)
x = x+1
exitonclick()

And another pattern

import turtle
turtle.setup(width=600, height=500)
turtle.reset()
turtle.hideturtle()
turtle.speed(0)

turtle.bgcolor('black')

c = 0
x = 0
