Build a Robot! Kindergarten Virtual Activity!

 Hey guys! I wanted to share what I've been doing with my Kindergarteners during this crazy weird alternate reality version of the world we are living in right now. 

We are in the middle of our Hybrid learning phase in my district. Half the kids (who didn't opt for 100% virtual) come on Monday and Tuesday, the other half Thursday and Friday. So there's only like 10-13 students in each class. 

I'm teaching Tech Tips to all of them! So with my virtual Kinders, I've had to be creative because I don't want to put too much on the parents to do. I made this simple drag and drop activity for them to create their own robot. 


I also post a video to show how to do this, so the parents can understand and the kids. Here is the video if you'd like to watch! 

Here are some of their wonderful creations!

For my face to face kiddos, we are using the LEGO WeDo Robots. They get to build with their hands and then we will begin coding once their tablets come back to school. Each student has their own WeDo kit, so there's no worry about sharing materials. This past week I just let them build whatever they wanted. We talked a little about the "brain" of a robot, and I showed them Milo the Science Rover and how we code him to move around. They were super excited! 




We start on October 5th going all five days with alllllll of our face to face kids. How are you handling this school year so far? Know that I'm praying for all of you! Have a great weekend!
