For teachers implementing an activity centers-based classroom, library, or makerspace, the KIBO Activity Center Guidebook provides 10 lessons that embed the KIBO philosophy of “Build – Art – Code – Play” in student-directed, discovery-based learning experiences.
This guide provides suggestions to setup a KIBO center (a “KIBO Corner”!) including supplies and layout, general advice for facilitating activities, and 10 complete lesson plans. Each lesson plan provides specific setup suggestions, facilitation tips, and information on addressing cross-curricular connections and academic standards. The guidebook helps teachers maximize the use of one or two KIBO kits within a larger class, a makerspace, or a library.
Activity lesson plans provided in the guidebook include:
- KIBO Bowling: Students use math skills such as measurement and estimation to program KIBO to reach the pins.
- KIBO Dance Party: Students learning about world culture combine music, art, and coding to create a KIBO dancer.
- KIBO Shape Search: Exploring geometry, students program KIBO to draw shapes they find in the classroom.
- And more!
