Here are some quick videos that highlight some hands on coding activities with kids. The first is what the "unplugged" coding game Robot Turtles looks like. This video shows my 5 year old son playing it.
The next example is what Bee Bots look like. The example below is again with my 5 year old son where we are working on the 1-10 number sequence using a Bee Bot and a game board we created out of copy paper.
From here, please scroll down to the next post where you can see more activities I have done with my first grade coders. The "quick take" videos will give a quick look into some cool activities we have done. Thank you and enjoy!
