After reading “Balloons Over Broadway” by author Melissa Sweet, Way Elementary third-grade students designed robot floats for their own Thanksgiving parade. According to Media Center Specialist Cindy Zervos, the students first discussed how Tony Sarg designed floats and balloons for the initial Macy's Thanksgiving Day parades. Then, the students held discussions on how Sarg anticipated possible problems and reviewed how improvements were made year after year. “Students were given time to design, create, test, and change a float that could be transported down our own parade route on an Ozobot,” said Zervos. “The Ozobots were color-coded to move, zigzag, and spin down the route.” Students shrieked in delight as their robotic creations came to life and moved along the parade route.
