When trying to control the turtle there are three different command levels: yellow, green, and blue. This tutorial will deal with the simplest of the three, the yellow level.
In this level the turtle is controlled using the arrow keys on the keypad. Clicking the buttons will cause the turtle to move forwards, backwards, left, and right. There are also buttons to toggle between the pen down, or pen up. Also, from this keypad the line color that the turtle traces can be selected.
Have fun mastering these basic turtle controls. When you really want to wow someone and feel confident enough with these basics move on to the tutorials dealing with the green and blue levels of control
