Sphero Draw and Drive

New Review

Determine how far the ball rolled. The class watches a video of a person controlling a sphere rolling on the floor. Pupils develop some questions about the video and make estimates to the solutions of the questions. The teacher provides learners with information about the scale between the control and the length the ball travels, allowing them to share their strategies and verify their solutions.
