Here is a video from the beginning of our BeeBot journey showing students programming at a single step at a time level. The child in the group who is prgramming is remembering to press the clear button between steps, but has not yet progressed to a multi-step program.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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.
