I plan to use the Sphero to enhance student learning of every subject I teach in fourth grade. We will paint geometric shapes for math, map the routes of the early explorers, locate distant planets, and trace energy through a food chain. In math, because it is waterproof, the Sphero can be roll through paint and the students can use their understanding of geometric angles to program the Spehero to paint shapes on paper. In Social Studies, students can use the "drive" feature to trace the route Christopher Columbus and Juan Ponce de Leon took to the New World. Students can then program the Sphero to locate the important battles of the Revolutionary War. In Science we can use the Sphereo to trace energy through a food web and locate distant planets on a map. We can also use the robot in STEM activities where students use Sphero to solve design challenges. As you can see, this robot will provide a way to engage my students in the content standards in a way I've never been able to do in my class.
