iRobot Code Break: Unplugged

Designed for Hour of Code 2019

Code Break!

In this year's Hour of Code unplugged activity packets, students use the power of programming to crack the secret code and learn where in the world the Root Robot is hiding.

Below, you'll find links to multiple activity packets, scaffolded for different grade levels. No technology is required for these unplugged, collaborative classroom activity packets.
