Original Author:  Margarida ROMERO Content Teaser ViBot the robot is a book meant for children from 7 to 77 years old that introduces programming and robotics.

ViBot the robot (Romero, 2016, illustrated by Loufane, Publications du Québec) is a book meant for children from 7 to 77 years old that introduces programming and robotics.

The book’s heroes are given a robot as a gift, and they have to program it in order to play with it. Thankfully, they can count on granny Ada, their e-mathematician-granny.

The story is told through English texts and their programmed equivalent in Scratch programming blocks. Resource Files Links:  Vibot the robot Featured:  Not-Featured

Beginner Projects That Don't Need a Color Printer

26 juli 2016 22:31
Original Author:  Janice Seal Content Teaser Don't have access to a color printer or the resources to buy books for your students? These projects can be printed on a black and white printer. Many are 2 per page to save paper. I put these worksheets together after not finding anything free that I could print in black-and-white and give each student a copy. I wanted to share them as I spent a lot of time on them. They have all been used in middle school math classes, and hopefully, I have gotten all the bugs out.
Each Word document has one or more sb2 files to show you how they work, or to use as a demonstration in class. Feel free to edit the Word documents. Many of them have tables with "no borders".  Editing will be easier if you put the borders back in to see where things are placed.
