Here are a few things my Year 3 class have been doing with their Dash robots.
Dash Obstacle Course
In pairs, students lay out an obstacle course using rulers/paddle pop sticks etc. They must code the robots to move through the course without touching the barrier. It was interesting for students to compare the walk through to the robot code as often they were mistakes! Pairs swapped with another group to tackle their obstacle course.
Code Dash robots to play a song using the xylophone attachment.
Place numbers around the room on the floor ( we used masking tape and a marker). Students drive the robots over a number in a particular pattern. The lower ability students skipped counted by 2’s while the higher ability students counted by 9’s.
