Dash & Dot: Geometry with Dash (Gr. 4-5)


This lesson is designed to use Dash & Dot robots and programming to support geometry lessons in identifying, classifying, describing, and finding the perimeter of quadrilaterals. Students will create quadrilaterals by building a pen attachment for Dash (optional) and using loops, angles, and distance traveled.


  • Students can measure and draw quadrilaterals.
  • Students can write algorithms to create quadrilaterals.
