Programming Robots Activity Booklet | 4th – 5th Grade


This activity booklet was designed to fulfill the requirements for the Programming Robots or can be used by frontier girl leaders to earn similar badges.

This booklet has tons of hands on activities and puzzles that teach girls how robots work. These activities include using binary code, creating their own algorithms, and even writing real code to control a virtual robot. With step-by-step activities, you can’t ask for a easier way to run your meeting. 

Activities Include:

  • Sequencing and debugging: Students will learn how to make a robot to work using computer code. They will learn the importance of the correct sequence and what “bugs” (mistakes) are.
  • Decoding binary: Students will learn how robots use binary code, the language computers understand.
  • Using algorithms: Students will learn about programming algorithms, instructions that can control robots and make art!
  • Write a step-by-step program: Students will learn to write an algorithm with step-by-step instructions and work in pairs to discover what secret messages each wrote.
  • Write real code on a computer: Students will learn to write computer code that controls a robot using Scratch, a platform created by MIT.
