Session 4! Bee Bots.

In this session we experimented with different activities to do with coding.

We chose to settle with Bee Bots. These are electronic devices that can be easily programmed by pupils to move in certain directions. These can then be used to do a range of activities. We came up with the idea of getting the pupils to make their bee bots move in directions that would take them from their current location to the school hall.

They could create maps on A1 pieces of paper and make their bee bots travel along it. This then links into geography (map work) and maths (co-ordinates).

There is also a Bee Bot app for ipads which allows the children to do certain tasks and travel their way through mazes and obstacles interactively.

During this session I also created a Tag Cloud using the Widgets option.
