A concrete way to learn basic coding commands! Students will have a blast being the "programmer" and the "robot" while learning map skills.

Providing students the opportunity to learn computer science skills and concepts through unplugged activities helps to build students' self-efficacy toward computer science and works toward building a stronger and deeper foundation for when plugged activities are introduced.

This resource provides students the opportunity to follow and write code while learning basic map skills.

How to Play:

1. Pick two students. 

  • One will be the programmer (the person that gives the commands to the robot, lays the command cards on the mat).
  • One will be the robot (the person placed on the grid, following the directions of the programmer - this is my favorite part watching them add the robot moves (-:).
  • I also purchased a robot costume for the robot to wear, super cute!!

2. I continue to have different students be the programmer and robot.

Ideas for use:
