This pack includes 12 cute bug themed bee bot squares to make your bee bot mat and 12 matching Multiplication and Division task cards.
Students read their task card and then program the bee bot to move from the go square to the correct bug answer square and then onto the stop square.
Create a Color Guitar with the Draw a Song activity and Root's Color Sensor. Students draw their color-coded music notes out on a white surface and code Root to play different notes when driving over each line.
