Science - Robots

Comparing myself to a robot

Why do you look different from me? Draw an outline drawing of a robot. Annotate the robot outline with labels of the different body parts. Write your own labels first and then ask an adult to model some other words which you can add in another colour. Compare the drawing to your human drawing from last week. Which labels are on both pictures (similarities) and which are only on one (differences)? 


Write a list of things which you think make a human.


What if humans had two heads or ten legs? What if we had no ears, eyes, hands, no head, etc? Look at which features can we manage without and which are essential? You could put names of different body parts on separate pieces of paper and sort them into which are the most important features (those that we would struggle to live without) and least important (those that we could manage without if we didn’t have them or, for example, we injured that body part). 


Design your own robot 

Design a robot. Draw it on paper and label the parts. Then, using junk/recyclable materials make your own robot. After you have made your robot evaluate it, saying what went well with your model and how you could improve your design.
