Students were thrilled to hear that we would be practicing beginning coding skills using the Bee-Bots. They have been eagerly awaiting a chance to get their hands on these coding robots. We explored the ways to make the Bee Bots go and practiced programming them. Then I introduced them to a rhyming game. The goal was for students to choose a card, identify the picture, and find a picture on the mat that rhymes. So we practicing rhyming AND coding! (and patience too, of course!)
Students also used their sense of sight to look through different kalideiscopes.
They then made binoculars using patterned duct tape, yarn, and toilet paper rolls.
Of course we had to take the binoculars outside and test them out!
