KTurtle is an educational programming environment for turtle graphics. It is released under the open-source GNU General Public License and is part of the KDE Project since KDE3. KTurtle has a built-in programming language that is loosely based on the Logo programming language. It is one of the few programming languages in which the programming commands can be translated to the human language of the programmer, thereby making it specifically useful for teaching programming to students before they are proficient with English.

KTurtle has been packaged by many Linux distributions, including Red Hat, SuSE, Debian and Ubuntu. Some distributions package KTurtle as a separate application, while others provide one package for all KDE's edutainment module, which includes KTurtle.

The KTurtle language and IDE are intended for teaching programming using turtle graphics.
