What a shame none of these posts count toward A3…!!!

Anyway, Bee-Bots. I have borrowed a Bee-Bot and a Pro-bot from school, and am currently googling fun activities for reading groups using the bots, and here are some of the things I have found:


Making your classroom buzz with Bee-Bots:Ideas and Activities for the Early Phase – this is a PDF from Queensland Government, and is full of really good and interesting ways to use your Bee-Bot.
The “My Bee-Bot” Blog – It does not seem to have been updated in a couple of years, but the ideas contained within are still relevant and plentiful. This post had some interesting literacy ideas for the Bee-Bot.
Pinterest – I searched for “bee-bot” and heaps of stuff appeared!!
Barefoot Computing – Programming with Bee-Bots
Bee-Bot activity guide from MTA – although this is essentially a marketing tool by MTA, a lot of the resources they are trying to flog could be easily made yourself. There are ideas for using Bee-Bots in English, maths, history and science.
Games in Education – This site links activities to the curriculum
MacICT Bee-Bots 2011 – using Bee-Bots in a Year 2 classroom

Year 3 identifying right angles with beebots – From TES, includes lesson plan and other resources for teaching about following instructions using right angles, writing directions using the language of position and direction, as well as right angles.

That will do for now or I will not get anything else done tonight. Jac out *mic drop*.
