Narrative activity- “Top Steps” September 8, 2010

Posted by alinnert in C.

I read the story “Handa’s Surprise” to the children during the morning session of our “Top Steps” day. After reading, we discussed the main ideas in the story. The students then sequenced different parts of the story in an IWB activity.

The next challenge was to create a story map  for “Handa’s Surprise” on a grid template. The students (in pairs) were to make their very own beebot mat which represented the story. Once the plan was made, the students wrote programming instructions for the beebot to follow.

They then transferred the pictures from their plan onto 10 x 10cm white paper squares. Together they arranged their squares under the plastic mat. Finally they retold the story by taking their beebot through the story map.

The beebots even  wore costumes!
