Book Resources + Coding Game

 

A flexible unit, combined with an educational coding game, to be used as a week-long focus or over a half term.

Curriculum Mapped

 

These resources are mapped to Science, Literacy, Maths, Geography, Design and Digital Technologies; and Health and PE learning areas.

 

It also incorporates cross curriculum priorities including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures.

 

Each character within the story allows students to discover that science is more than just lab coats and microscopes. Pippa and Dronie explore Australia and show what members of their community achieve.

Use Google Earth

 

Explore each area that a Pippa and Dronie character work in. It will take you to each of the geographical locations of the characters. At each geographical spot there are experiences and/or activities to explore how scientists and Dronie work together. 

Final Challenge

 

​To complete the unit there is a Design Challenge to create their own drone and become a scientist of their own creation.

Dronie Game

 

Dronie is a multi-level block coding game, where Dronie travels around Australia doing important work. This is a great introduction to block coding for students.

 

The first couple of levels are great for early Primary students, with the later levels being a good challenge for late Primary students.

 

Head to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and search for 'Dronie'.

 

She is waiting for you to take her on an adventure!
