Some of the Preschool children are really interested in robots… how they move… the sounds they make… the cool things they can do… So they made their own robots, which they upgraded into Colouring Bots! The Colouring Bots moved around the paper making marks and patterns and lots of robot noises! The children shared imaginative ideas about what their robots could do such as helpful tasks around their house, or being really strong and fast. They used descriptive language to talk about their robot’s features.
