Rockin' Robots

We spent the week rockin’ with all kinds of robots!
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.

It was fun to program robots.
We took turns being the programmer and the robots.
As a programmer, we gave verbal commands like, "Robots jump" and "Robots turn around" and the robots did as they were told.

It was definetly a rockin' week with all kinds of robots!
