This tutorial will present you with an example of how to use a repeating procedure to create a flower.
Step 1 - Place a turtle on the screen.
Step 2 - Write and save a procedure, within the squared brackets, for creating a shape, such as a hexagon.
Step 3 - Write another procedure, named flower, which incorporates the shape procedure you have just written. The number of repetitions will determine how many petals the flower will have. The angle the turtle needs to turn each time is 360 degrees divided by the number of repetitions.
Step 4 - Run the Procedure.
Use this tutorial as a template for your future creations if you are having trouble coming up with logo command ideas.
