Transcript of Morse Code

Morse Code
What are the noises Morse code makes?
The Morse code makes 'dits' and 'dahs' noises. A shorter sound is a 'dit' and a longer note is a 'dah'. Every letter of the alphabet has different 'dits' and 'dahs'. For example the letter A is: dit dah. The letter B is: dah dit dit dit. The letter C is: dah dit dah dit. There isn't a long break between words so it is hard to understand Morse code. British people in the 1940's learn't Morse code off by heart so they could get a job decoding messages. Morse code is tricky to learn!
Enigma code
So the Morse code is British but now we will go on the the Germans code 'The enigma code'. Beltchley park was where the british solved the code and decoded it. The enigma code is where you type in the message and it jumbles it up and sends it to the person you want it to go to. The enigma code machine looks a bit like a keyboard. During the war the Germans kept modernizing the enigma code so the British wouldn't know what it meant.

So what do we know about Morse Code?
Who invented the Morse code?
Samuel Morse
Did you know?
Did you know that you don't have to use a Morse code key to send messages. Ooh no! You can also use a torch to do the same thing. You can make the 'dits' and the 'dahs' by turn the light on for longer and shorter periods of time. It is also easier to do it by torch or light as we have them everywhere now.
It's your turn!
You have to right your

name on your whiteboards in Morse code. Here is the alphabet to help you out!
Did you know?
Samuel Finley Breese Morse invented the Morse code in 1837. From 1832-1837 Samuel worked on the morse code and made it out of materials such as a homemade battery and old clock work gears. Samuel Morse named the morse code after his surname, Morse.
Did you know that this is how you say "Hello, this is my prezi about the Morse code" in Morse code well then here it is:
...././.-../.-../--- // -/..../../...//../...// --/-.--//.--./.-././--../..//.-/-.../---/..-/-//-/...././/--/
What does a Morse code key look like?
A Morse code key is the machine that makes the noises for the Morse code. It has a buzzer which you make the 'dits' and 'dahs'. It usually is a gold colour and it is usually on a wooden base. The noise travels down the wires and to the other end.
Did you know?
Did you know that the first message to be sent by Morse code was 'What hath god wrought'. It sounds very strange as you would think it would be like 'hello, is the morse code working' but it is not. I know that if I were to make a code the first thing I would say is 'Is chocolate coming out of the other end'!
