Robots are Buzzing around KindergartenStudent were given a number line 0-20, a die to use and a target number. They rolled the die. If they rolled a four, they placed the Bee-Bot on four. The students thought to themselves "how many more to get to the target number from four? They would then program the Bee-Bot to move forward six more to make it to a target of 10. They had targets of 10, 13, and 20. Some classes even tried going backwards and figuring out how many fewer to get to the target. The Bee-Bots are also bluetooth ready and can be controlled with an app on the iPad. Mr. Harkins plans to come back and show the K students how to program the Bee-Bots using the iPads in their classroom. |
