In this activity, students build a house of sticks, just like the second little pig in the classic story, The Three Little Pigs. Then, they program an educational robot to push down the house, much like the wolf who “blows the house down.”
What is a robot? What can robots do? Computer programmers tell robots what to do by creating a sequence of commands. In this lesson, students work in pairs to program a robot to act out the story from the mini story book *My Friend.*
Introduce students to the term **algorithm** using the familiar story of The *Three Little Pigs*. In this lesson, students will develop an algorithm, or a step-by-step **sequence** of instructions, for building a house made out of bricks.
