Bee Bots are a fantastic interactive visual program, that physical engages the students. Bee Bots can help students understand directions similar to Scratch but it real time and life. As an educator I can set up obstacle courses that the students must program the Bee Bots to maneuver around using the Beet Bot ruler. I would get students to work in small groups. This allows students to understand instructions, left and right, and how to measure.
As students become familiar/confident with controlling and using the Bee Bots rulers, the obstacle courses can become more challenging or simply added another Bee Bots to command.
