VEX 123 Activities

These activities offer more ways to engage with the 123 Robots, providing simple one page exercises that connect to the content and coding they are learning in the classroom.

They are designed to be easy to follow for independent student use, as an extension activity or in a Learning Center setting. With curriculum connections, they can also be part of a teacher’s lesson, or a scaffolding strategy to support differentiated learning.

Each one is designed with a base Play activity, which is built upon with Challenge prompts; “remixing” the skills and concepts students have been learning, and infusing computer science concepts into the curriculum in a seamless way.
