The git-novice workshop is really good, and I got to learn about git fairly sufficiently without prior experience in it.
However, the lessons instruct the learner to edit texts as the lessons progress. Typically as exemplified beginning at episode 4 "Tracking changes", the instruction is:
$ nano mars.txt
which is immediately followed by;
$ cat mars.txt
and the output shows the edited text.

For some learners who are just getting acquinted with Unix and then git, there may be some confusion.
I suggest that the exact text to be added be given in an instruction prior to the request to open the text editor.
For example:

Now suppose Dracula adds the following information to the file"The two moons may be a problem for Wolfman"
$ nano mars.txt
$ cat mars.txt

Output
Cold and dry, but everything is my favorite color
The two moons may be a problem for Wolfman

Thanks
