Hour of Code
The second phase of our coding activities will be for the children to work with the Bee Bots that our PTO purchased for us. The Bee Bots are programmable robots in the shape of bees. The children will work in teams on a grid with pictures. They will be asked to program the Bee Bot to go to the pictures in a particular order. They will need to program the Bee Bot to accomplish this activity.
