Working with Bee-Bots

This week we have played with our friendly and easy-to-operate robots the Bee-Bots, in our sessions of the Sharing to Learn program.

The students of grade 4 and the Language Assistants had a great time programming the bees to complete a task that was really challenging!

They had to "give" instructions to the "Bee" through the instructions pannel (placed on the back of the bee) to drive the robot to follow up a short shopping-list task on the Street mat.



The task was: 

I'm at home
1. First, I want to by some flowers to my mum's birthday
2. Then, I must buy apples and bananas to prepare my baby sister porridge.
3. Then, I can go to the park for a while.
4. Finally, I go back home.

Can you drive the Bee-bot through the Street mat and complete the task?

Have a look at the photos and the short video.  It was a great thinking time!

What a Wonderful World

This song was originally by Louis Armstrong.

But the version we have worked in the class is by Joey Ramone (Punk Rock).

The Ramones were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974.

Can you sing the song as if a karaoke?

    

Enjoy!

A New Animal! A Fantastic Animal!

You are starting a project about "My Fantastic Animal" (El Meu Animal Fantàstic), so we have proposed to start a new "Corner" (un racó) in English.

Let's make a new animal and its habitat!

Just clic on this web page and start "switching" your animal. Then you can name it and describe it.

But remember to follow the model! It is very important if you want to do a good description of your fantastic animal.
