Bee-Bot Card Mat
The Bee-Bot card mat is the perfect companion for Bee-Bot Lessons and Problem-Solving with Bee-Bot. The Bee-Bot Card Mat is a 6 by 6 grid with a clear plastic sheet on top. The grid is designed so that each square represents one Bee-Bot step. Lift the plastic sheet, place images from Bee-Bot Lessons on the grid, and lower the plastic sheet to lock them in place. With the grid as a guide, students use Bee-Bot to explore the subject or task represented by the images. The grid itself provides the basis for the challenges in Problem-Solving with Bee-Bot and introduces students to cartesian coordinates and mapping as they develop Bee-Bot routes. The Bee-Bot Card Mat provides a durable and flexible learning station for Bee-Bot that can be used in all areas of the curriculum.
