Level 1

  • Play a campfire story game. Run the program, then toss Dot to the first player, who tells a story using the story starter.
  • Then toss Dot to the next player, and so on.

Example of story starters:

  • The invisible dinosaur…
  • The microscopic robot…
  • The alien princess…
  • In the far, far future…

Try these behaviors and cues:

Level 2

Play the campfire story game, but this time make the story starters random so you don’t know which one is next!

  • Program Dot to give you a random story starter with each shake.
  • Play a campfire story game with your friends. Toss Dot to the first player, who tells a story using the story starter. Then toss Dot to the next player, and so on.

Try these behaviors and cues:

Level 3

Play the campfire story game, but this time make the story starters random and non-repeatable.

  • Program Dash to give you a different, random story starter with each Shake. The same story starter should never repeat during the game.
  • Play a campfire story game with your friends. Toss Dot to the first player, who tells a quick story using the story starter. Then toss Dot to the next player, and so on.

Try these behaviors and cues:

Ideas

  • Try loading your program onto Dot so you don’t need to use the app to run it.
  • When you toss Dot, Dot treats it like a shake.
