These lessons highlight the use of a coding robot in teaching the concept of 10s and 1s. The students will need to understand place values and that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones in order to solve the math problems presented. In these lessons, students are charged to work collaboratively and use computational thinking skills to program the robot to complete the task. Shopping as a tourist, pollinating flowers, and herding sheep are the various tasks that students will encounter. Use these lessons in isolation or incorporate them into more developed mini units to explore additional topics.
