We use Bee-Bots all year long in our Makerspace. The programming commands are easy to use with our Kindergartners and First Graders. And Second Graders love adding extra commands like pause, spins and moving backwards on our mats.
In this resource students design and engineer a paper building to place on the mat as a community. (Innovative Designer). Then they code Bee-Bot through the maze of buildings (Computational Thinker).
Included are directions on how to use the Bee-Bots and how to make your mats easily and cheaply. You can even end your programming with a cute Bee-Bot certificate.
Also included are letter-size paper posters of 6 different community workers with a simple description for each a job (Empowered Learner). Hang them around your room for independent learning.
