Curriculum and Teacher Materials to Ensure KIBO Success
When you make the commitment to purchase KIBO for your young learners, we want to ensure you’re successful bringing robotics into your classroom.
The KIBO Curriculum integrates:
– Computational thinking (Programming)
– The Engineering Design Process (Building)
– Integration component (Curricular Theme)
Our comprehensive set of curriculum materials supports you in every way. You’ll get easy to implement lesson plans and fun play-based activities to introduce KIBO and build students’ basic engineering and programming skills; but you’ll also get support in integrating robotics into your classroom with a wide range of cross-curricular connections to literacy, community, dance, science, and more! We are offer various Professional Development, including training, lesson plan development and curriculum integration.
To help you get started right away
Our comprehensive, research-based Curriculum Book “Creating with KIBO,” offers up to 40 hours of curriculum working with your KIBO. Creating with KIBO introduces the concepts of programming, sensing, robotics and the engineering design process in the PreK to 2 classroom.
Activity Guide Cards
Get the excitement going with these activities
A set of 11 unique activity cards to help introduce teachers and students to each of the components of KIBO robotics and to engage children in fun learning challenges.
KIBO Says – Class Programming Game
Let’s have some fun with KIBO
Just like Simon Says, get Children to play with their robot while learning KIBO’s programming commands with the KIBO Says game cards.
KIBO and Engineering Design Process Poster
Because who doesn’t like pretty posters?
These Engineering Design Process Posters help teachers teach the parts of KIBO and the engineering design process.
The below materials are best to purchase one per student as they monitor growth and overall knowledge of KIBO.
Time to see what the kids know about their robot
These Assessment Packs help teachers evaluate student learning with KIBO with a focus on programming and robotics concepts and the engineering design process. These assessments, in the form of fun story problems with stickers that children need to solve, help teachers address student learning and outcomes.
Engineering Design Journals
The easy way to learn engineering design processes
The Engineering Design Journal helps students review and follow the six different steps of the engineering design process and helps them organize their work with KIBO robotics around the different steps. The design journal is useful for documenting the processes, assessing student knowledge, and sharing student work with parents. It is recommended one design journal per student.
