Taking a Virtual Trip Around New York State
Two students noting locations on their maps of NYS
At Chestnut Ridge School, fourth-grade teachers Tammy Chalifoux and Jinny Barton redesigned a lesson on NYS geography, incorporating user-friendly Ozobot robots. Student teams began by identifying landmarks on their state maps. Then they learned basic coding rules and programmed their robots to take a virtual trip around the state, moving from Yonkers to Buffalo, Albany and Massachusetts, then back to Rochester.
