Six years ago, I attempted to teach my 5th graders how to build, drive, program, and test their VEX IQ robots as part of the Project Lead the Way curriculum. It was a big learning curve for both myself and my students!
My Epic Failure...the first time I taught fifth grade robotics!
Huh? I don't get it!
OK, so let's try this again!
What is collaboration? How can we work successfully together?
OK, now this is better...
So let's take turns. I will drive this time and you program and then we can switch.
This is so much better! You have learned to work together fairly! I am so proud of you!
