Bee-Bot Reinforces Sequencing Concepts
Sequencing with Bee-Bot
Using Bee-Bot to sequence Little Red Riding Hood
Mallory Jurkash, STEM Innovation Teacher at Cedar Elementary School in Avon, IN uses Bee-Bot to teach sequencing across the curriculum.

While studying scientific concepts, Mallory's students program Bee-Bot to move stage by stage through the life cycle of a bird, lizard, or other creature.

Mallory's students use Bee-Bot to travel through stages of a story narrative in language arts.

Mallory finds using Bee-Bot to teach sequencing has many benefits:
  • programming Bee-Bot helps understanding event sequence
  • students discover new facts at each stop
  • concepts of the order of things are strengthened
  • students learn to follow directions
  • sentence structure is reinforced
  • memory is strengthened
Mallory observes that "sequencing exercises as well as learning about the order of things means students collaborate, estimate, and apply algorithms to successfully move Bee-Bot to the next stage of a lesson".
