Bee-Bot Lessons was developed by Cristy McBee, a kindergarten teacher in a technology rich laboratory classroom in Rock Springs, WY. Each of the lessons has been used and refined by both the author and her colleagues throughout the school district with the goal of being easy to implement and classroom tested. They work well with students from pre-kindergarten through second grade.
Bee-Bot Lessons is a licensed, online product that comes with a license to copy the lessons and use them throughout a school site. You will receive a license key that provides access to the online version, where you can browse and print the pages, or download the book and/or the lesson cards as PDF files.
Included are over 1,000 brightly-colored images carefully matched to the lessons and organized into convenient PDF files. Each lesson specifies the file containing the images that support it, along with other suggested resources, most conveniently available at schools. Print the images, follow the lesson instructions, and set Bee-Bot or Blue-Bot off on a teaching adventure for your class! With lessons for math, science, social studies, reading, art, and more, Bee-Bot Lessons can be used throughout the day and throughout the year, incorporating technology across the curriculum.
The Bee-Bot Card Mat is the perfect companion for Bee-Bot Lessons. The Bee-Bot card mat is a 6 by 6 grid with a clear plastic sheet on top. The grid is designed so that each square represents one Bee-Bot step. Lift the plastic sheet, place images from Bee-Bot Lessons or those you create on the grid, and lower the plastic sheet to lock them in place. With the grid as a guide, students use Bee-Bot to explore the subject or task represented by the images. The Bee-Bot card mat provides a durable and flexible learning station for Bee-Bot that can be used in all areas of the curriculum.
Bee-Bot Lessons is available online where you can view and print the lessons and associated images. Each lesson includes links to associated mats in Bee-Bot Online so lessons may be taught online or in class. A login code comes on the invoice and allows access to the curriculum for three years.
