Use these Beebot/Bluebot mats to integrate technology into your insect lesson.
These 15cmx15cm mats correspond with the distance Beebot/Bluebot travels and can be used in a variety of ways. I place the mats side by side in rows and in a long line to begin with for simple coding. This also integrates Numeracy into your lesson by having children count how many spaces Beebot/Bluebot is required to move.
As the children become more confident in their coding, I create interesting patterns and any other format I can think of using the images. They then serve as flashcards for transitions to consolidate learning and to check for understanding.
These cards make integrating technology into your lessons easy, low prep and will drastically increase your students engagement in learning.
