I used this in my classroom during my 5th grade Robotics unit. This was used as an introduction to robots and a way for students to get some background research by using the Robots App.
I had students make a K-W-L chart on the Popplet app first, and do the 'K'and 'W' parts in partners on one of their iPads. Students were then presented with the essential questions, so that they could keep those in mind as they did research.
Students will work to find a definition of robots, study a history/timeline of robotic breakthroughs and cultural references, and also explore the different types of robots.
There is also a modified version included with sentence starters for differentiation and teacher instructions.
****This is available in a BUNDLE with another robotics activity in my store****
