Ms. Craig's students use robots Robots in the Classroom in 5th Grade
Fifth Grade students in Miss Craig’s Science Class used robots in the classroom as a way to start learning to code.  Students used Sphero Mini, Ozobot, and Dash robots in centers to complete different activities. The students will rotate centers weekly to get a chance to use each kind of robot, and expand their coding skills.  Fun while learning is the best option according to these students.
