Active Share

  1. Ask questions to help facilitate a discussion.
    1. What behaviors make up your 123 Robot’s dance?

Discussion Prompts

Digital Documentation

  • The teacher can record a video of the projects in Play Part 2 for each group. 
  • The teacher can combine videos to show all the 123 Robot’s dance moves in a dance party.

Student-Driven Visible Thinking

  • Have students write or draw their projects from Play Part 2, and save these artifacts as a collection of "Robot Dance Party" projects. Students can revisit these to try out other group's projects or remix their own during Learning Center times or Choice time. 

Metacognition-Reflecting Together

  • What new behavior did your 123 Robot perform?
  • If we could add another Coder card what would you have the 123 Robot behavior be?
  • How did you demonstrate teamwork today with your group?
