|Introductory Lessons | Blue-Bot only
Place the Blue-Bot on the floor. Have a student or students place one end of string next to the front of the Blue-Bot. Have a student select the forward arrow one time and then go.* The Blue-Bot will move forward 1 unit. Mark the string where the front of the Blue-Bot stopped. Cut the String where marked. This represents the distance of one unit of Blue-Bot.
Have students sit in a circle. One student picks another student sitting in the circle and estimates how many units it will take Blue-Bot to reach the selected student. The Student will estimate, test, and adjust if necessary. Once the Blue-Bot reaches the student, have that student answer a question before selecting another student to send the Blue-Bot to. Perhaps introducing themselves if it is the beginning of the school year, their favorite something, a book they recently read they would recommend, their are infinite ways you can incorporate questions from current units of study..
Don’t forget the Blue-Bot holds all previous commands entered, and adds new ones onto the end. You can delete previous commands by selecting the clear button.
