Active Share

  1. Facilitate a group share and tell.
    1. Students will share their projects.
    2. Students should show the order of the Coder cards on the Coder. Then, run their whole project at once without using the step by step on the class treasure map.
  2. Ask questions to help facilitate a discussion.
    1. Why is it important for our 123 Robot to follow a specific order?
    2. What behaviors did you see other 123 Robot’s complete during their treasure hunt?
    3. Is there more than one way to get to the treasure on your map? How many other ways can you get from start to treasure on your map?

Discussion Prompts

Digital Documentation

  • The teacher can use video to record and compile all the different ways students coded their 123 Robot to reach the treasure.

Student-Driven Visible Thinking

  • Have students draw or write their successful projects from Play Part 2 and the map they created. Save these artifacts in a "Robot Treasure Hunt" book, and students can try out another group's project, or remix their own projects during Learning Center or Choice times.

Metacognition-Reflecting Together

  • How many different ways did our class find a way to travel to the treasure on the map?  
  • If we switched the map around again, what could we do to find the treasure? 
  • How did your group decide on the sequence of Coder cards?
