Busy Bees at Aspen Park are learning to code while having fun!
The Gr. 1 ‘Busy Bees’ in Mrs. Shelly’s class had a chance to learn and code Ozobots, which they turned into little bees. After discussing all the technologies we have around us, they extended their capabilities by learning all about colour coding. They created a story map of a garden on their page and created a coding map for their Ozobots, or ‘busy bees’ to complete. When the Ozobots passed something on the map that would give it a reaction, their colour code would have to change to show that emotion. There was a lot of trial and error to make changes where needed, but students solved problems by working together or incorporating new ideas from others. Way to go little Busy Bees! Who said Gr. 1’s couldn’t be coders?
