Three activities are included with answer keys. You need Code & Go Robot Mice and Beebots for this activity.

Video About Earth Day Coding
Please start by cutting a piece of butcher paper or clear shower curtain into 18x18 inches square. You will need to measure and draw a grid so you have (4 ½ by 4 ½ in.) squares. You will end up having 16 total boxes. You can make as many grids as needed. I put my students into six groups so I made 6 grids.
Print the desired pages. Cut-it and Glue-it to match the provided example on the butcher paper or tape it under the clear shower curtain. If you use butcher paper then you might want to laminate grids to re-use in the future. Students are able to record their work using a dry-erase marker at the bottom of the square or you can use the direction cards that come with the robots.
When you introduce it to the students you will tell the students that they need to code a path for the robot (Beebot or Code and Go Robot Mouse). Tell the students to record their path instructions. At the end students can check their answers. The students should always start with their robot nose –up.
