Explore and Measure our Town

Where will KIBO go when it explores the town? Students draw or build a town, then program KIBO to explore it by traveling from place to place. As KIBO moves around the town with the Marker Extension Set attached, the lines KIBO draws become a record of it’s adventures as well as creates measurements of the distances in the town.

We recommend incorporating the reading of Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson. This classic story about the power of imagination and the possibilities in a single line will help get kids in the mood for creating their imaginary town.
