  1. Name Your Robot - Divide students into groups and give them 3-5 minutes to decide on a name for their 123 Robot, and list up to 3 personality traits about it.  Then share each with the class.
  2. Post a Robot Roster: Create a chart, and as students share their 123 Robot’s name; add it into the Chart. Show the students, and point out that this will help them take care and organize their 123 Robots.

Discussion Prompts

Digital Documentation

  • Take photos of each of the “What if?” processes as written or explained on the board, to share and remind students of these moments later on.

Student-Driven Visible Thinking

  • Post the student’s “Robot Personalities” and any other written elements from the lab.
  • Sign to Ratify the Robot Rules - you can have your class “sign off” that they agree to follow the Robot Rules for the class, and post these wherever you are keeping your 123 Robot documentation.

Metacognition-Reflecting Together

  • Observing Prompt - What is something our robots can or cannot do, that is different from other devices you know?
  • Predicting Prompt - What is 1 prediction (or conclusion) that surprised you in the What if’s? 
  • Collaborating Prompt - What is 1 way that you will put the Robot Rules into action the next time we work with them?
