My grade 3 class has been working hard on a robot unit. We kicked it off with a Mind Map. We then created robots from recycled materials as a part of our building and testing unit. After they were built, we wrote descriptions of our robots, measured their arms heads, legs etc and graphed their heights. We then graphed how many 3D shapes were found on all of the robots (MATH). <br>Next, we took the description we had written and traded anonymously with a partner. That partner then used TwistedWave …
