Rockin' Robots

We spent the week rockin’ with all kinds of robots!
Robobots by Matt Novak is a favorite book of all times. Many of us can "read" it by ourselves and do so over and over again.
After reading Sorcerer's Apprentice by Ted Dewan, 
we used tin cans and magnets to create our own robots.  
When we were happy with our creations, we wrote stories about them.
Gears and nuts and bolts, oh my! Robot parts- gears, nuts and bolts were used to put together a robot of our own design.
We played a game called "Build a Robot".
We had to spin a spinner to get a certain number. Then we picked a robot part from that number's pile of parts. We made some pretty rockin’ robots!
We used robot parts like nuts, bolts, gears, springs, and more for printing onto paper for some interesting designs.
We read Benjamin McFadden and the Robot Babysitter by Timothy Bush
and then enjoyed experimenting with batteries, lights, motors and buzzers.
Robots are definitely rockin'!
