Programming in PreK!

PreK was lucky to have a special friend come visit! As part of GATE collaboration for Talent Development a fifth grade GATE student brought a robot to share with the class!  He not only brought a robot to teach us to program, but he designed a map for us as well. The map had different characters, settings, and things to help us learn about the different story elements. Students were able to tell stories using the BeeBot. They programmed BeeBot to travel to diffent things on the map to tell their story. Cross grade level enrichment gives the older student confidence in teaching and mastering a skill while benefiting the younger student with additional opportunities to learn in a peer based environment.
