# Kim Johnston▸ U4: Math Connections

In prep, once the students are confidently programming the Bee-Bot, introduce the Shape, Colour and Size Mat with the following three activities to extend their learning experiences. To complete these activities students must differentiate Shape (square, circle, triangle or rectangle), Colour (yellow, red, blue or green), and Size (small or large).
Learning Focus
The Bee-Bot reinforces: programming, control and direction– forward, back, right, left, pause; problem solving, exploration and prediction and sequence and order.
Activity One
• Start on the blue square and go to the red circle
• Start on the yellow triangle and go to the green triangle
• Start on the red square and go to the blue circle
Activity Two
Try to do this activity in as few moves as possible
• Start on the yellow circle and visit the other circles
• Start on the red square and visit all the other squares
• Start on the green rectangle and visit all the other rectangles
• Visit these shapes
Activity Three
Try to do this activity in as few moves as possible
• Start on the yellow circle and go to the blue triangle without visiting any red shapes
• Start on the red triangle and go to all the other red shapes without visiting any yellow shapes
• Start on the small yellow square and visit the other small square and the two small circles without visiting any blue shapes
