Students command an interactive Python shell (similar to the IDLE development environment) and use Python functions to move a turtle displayed on the screen.

I think that Walter Bender's Turtle Art has an even lower threshold.
You can snap together blocks representing turtle commands, and then
use one of the Python-programmable blocks to add a single Python
expression or call a Python program from a file. I have, for example,
a graphing session in which a fixed TA program draws the coordinate
axes, and then graphs whatever function the user has inserted in the
We have such environments in Sugar for Python, Logo, and Smalltalk.
Your environment looks ideal for the next step up. Would you like to
