Active Share

  • Have students share their projects with the class by showing their Coder, and explain how they chose to “scare away” the Wolf. Remind students to keep their Coder upright to avoid any Coder cards falling out of the Coder.
  • Facilitate conversations as projects are shared and explained, by asking questions like:
    • Why did your group choose that Coder card to scare the Wolf?
    • How did your group decide which Coder card to use?  
    • How were other group’s projects similar or different to yours?
    • Was there only one way to solve the problem of scaring away the Wolf? Why or why not?
  • If a group tested more than one project, have them share which one they thought worked better to scare the Wolf, and why.

Discussion Prompts

Digital Documentation

  • Take short videos, or images of students’ projects as they “scare away” the Wolf. Put them together to show all the ways the class solved the problem of the Wolf in their path.

Student-Driven Visible Thinking

  • Eye Sensor, Eye Sensor, What do you see? Have students write or draw what their Little Red Robot’s Eye Sensor saw during the Lab, and then write what it did next. Students can take this home to share with their families, to help them talk about what they learned.

Metacognition-Reflecting Together

  • If someone came to our class, who did not know about the Eye Sensor in the 123 Robot, how would you explain what it does to them?
  • How did you think the 123 Robot knew to stop at Grandmother’s house at the beginning of the Lab? How do you think it’s doing it now?  What changed in your thinking?
  • What is something your group did today that helped you work together?
