Educational Use
Students are introduced to the classification of animals and animal interactions. Students also learn why engineers need to know about animals and how they use that knowledge to design technologies that help other animals and/or humans. This lesson is part of a series of six lessons in which students use their growing understanding of various environments and the engineering design process, to design and create their own model biodome ecosystems.

Day 1:

In this lesson, students will…

Use Bee-bots to trace the perimeter of a rectangle. They will then prove their findings with equations that match the path that they coded.

Day 2:

In this lesson, students will…

Use Bee-bots to “drive” the area of a rectangle. They will then prove their findings with equations that match the path that they coded.

This unit contains a curriculum-embedded Common Core aligned task and instructional supports. The task is embedded in a 3-4 week unit on solving real-world problems to reinforce the strategies of tiling, multiplication, addition and area models to calculate the perimeter and area of polygons. In addition, students will need to demonstrate and explain their reasoning of strategies used to solve the task.
