Robot voices, robot bodies, and robot building all around! Our Saplings have had deep curiosity about these intriguing machines. What does a robot look like? What kind of words do they say? What functions could they have? What kind of robot would we build? How do robots move?
We have explored these questions deeply this past month and a half, and to our delight, it has vigorously engaged the interests, skills, and passions for our artists, scientists, and independent minds alike! Through delving into a variety of art media such as recycled materials, loose parts, clay, nuts and bolts, and shapes we face all open-ended possibilities, coming to class ready to build!
Our community meetings have implemented language and literacy through learning "Robot" vocabulary, robot songs, and robot movement. Not to mention, our community field trip to the Robot Repair Shop has been quite the adventure!
Our robot unit has been such a success, we had decided to continue our work halfway through April. We couldn't have been more excited for our Hands-On Robot Museum, where we shared our hard work with our families and friends. We extend a heart-felt thank you to our explorers and their families and friends, who came to share this special experience with us.
