Robot Maths

I had an inkling that this Robot related activity would be a big hit with my 4 year old mindee today and it was! It’s amazing how, when applied to a fun subject matter, that maths can come alive and be interesting!

I presented him with a series of coloured shapes and asked him to identify each shape and its colour which he did perfectly. We then set about making our robot which sparked lots of great ideas from him – “this triangle could be his icecream cone” etc.

My mindee then named his robot “hearty” and was then keen to use the remaining shapes to make another one!

We then did a short quiz counting how many of each shape our robot had.

Simple, effective and fun!
