Bee Bots supporting inquiry
We have spent some of our reward points from Scholastic Book Fairs and we have purchased some Bee Bots. Bee Bots are some programmable robots that are excellent to use across the curriculum (lower primary). These are hassle free ICT tools for supporting the Technologies curriculum as well.
In the JS Staffroom we have the Bee Bots on a world map ready for your explorations. We have ordered more maps – just waiting on delivery!
Bee Bots in action
See this blog post Beebots Downunder for some ideas about how these are being used in classes.
Great for literacy, maths, problem solving and geography! (Perfect for mapping UOI Year 2/3).
Name our beebots
We have six Bee Bots and they need names!
Please come and have a play with your class and suggest a name (and reason why).
