TIPS & TRICKS

It is highly recommended that teachers go through the process of creating the Droid before doing it with students. The app has very clear directions but you will be able to help students much quicker if you have done it yourself rst.

PACING

One or two 50-minute periods – it takes most of a period to create the Droid. If your students are new to littleBits, this lesson will probably take two periods. If they are experienced, they will likely finish in one.

TOOLS USED
