Creating Weird Robots

Aiden sharing one of the weird robots the class made.

Creating Weird Robots

As a beginning writing project for all of our students, we had them design, build then write a manual for that robot.  As unique as all of students are, so were the robots.  The manuals had to include: a labeled diagram, a section to tell what the robot can do and a trouble-shooting section for when something goes wrong.

Once my students had their ideas of what they wanted to do, they were eager to complete the project and I was able to assess their writing.   Building the robots, using whatever materials we had in the classroom (pipe cleaners, wrapping paper, foam, construction paper…), created huge, fabulous robots!  Great project!
