Robot Turtles Resources

Robot Turtles is a programming board game for preschoolers and early elementary schoolers. It was designed as a family game, with a parent setting up the board and mediating game play. In a classroom setting, this is challenging due to the low teacher to student ratio and the lack of programming knowledge of most elementary school teachers. We have created resources to make Robot Turtles more amenable to a classroom atmosphere. We recommend these resources for pre-K through 1st grade.

You can purchase Robot Turtles from any store, such as Amazon

We have created four sets of boards. Each board level has many individual boards that gradually increase in difficulty.

Level 1: Beginner. Only barriers. 

Level 2: Intermediate. Barriers and ice.

Level 3: Advanced. Barriers, ice, and crates.

Level 4: Expert: Barriers, ice, creates, and function frogs.
