Tina is a turtle. But what's a turtle? It's what's called an object. This means that a programmer has written some code that we can use to do cool things. In Tina's case, she knows how to go forward, backward, left, and right because the people who wrote the turtle object thought those would be neat things for turtles to do.

At the beginning of all of our examples, we import turtle. This lets us use code that's already been written and gives Tina and any other turtles we make their abilities.

You can give Tina a different name, and that newly named turtle will know how to do everything Tina does. Give Tina any name you choose in this example:

Hint: You'll have to change all of the names from Tina to the name you choose. Otherwise, Python will be confused which one you're talking about.
