The following activity is designed to be used with one of our favorite classroom tools: Sphero. [For more information on Sphero, please check out http://www.sphero.com/.] My 4th – 5th graders have experience using the app to control our Spheros, but thus far have limited experience programming them. This year’s summer Olympics has inspired me to create the SpherOlympics.
From the activity: "Today, you’ll be competing in the SpherOlympic Games! Your job is to work as a team to help your Sphero to complete in Sphero-nastics, Shero-archery, or Sphero-swim!"
