Hello Fello bee-botters,

I have been looking around for some resources for the bee-bot mats, as i am in the process of making some of my own, when i came across SparkleBox. They have a section for ‘robots’ and have prinatable 15cm x 15cm cards. There are cards for maths, english and many other themed resources. I thought those people who are interested in making their own mats would appreciate this resource. All you need is a colour printer and away you go!

1 MS is planning to do group work with our Bee Bots. We will be splitting into 7 groups of 3 students each. Our first team building exercise will be designing a shell for our Bee Bot, using the template found at http://www.kenttrustweb.org.uk/kentict/content/games/beebotShell_v2.html .  Each group will also choose a name for their Bee Bot.

Our unit this term is Local Places. We plan to integrate the Bee Bots into the unit with a culminating project where we will construct a town/city for the Bee Bots using recycled materials for building on a grid. We will then design certain missions for the Bee Bots to perform by programming them to follow various routes through their local place.
