The Results

First graders at VP worked in partners, to first turn their Sphero into a Snowman.  Then, the race was on.  While one partner drove Sphero to the magic noodles, the other partner gathered the correct types of noodles to make a group of 10.  The signal was given, and the driver brought the snowman and its load of noodles back.  The more groups of 10 created, the more possibility of snow!
