Students plan a series of moves that take the
ladybug through a maze.
To help the ladybug plan the path it should take to
navigate through the maze, click on the direction buttons. The commands
will appear on the screen below the picture of the ladybug.
Click on the Play button to see if the path works. To clear a step,
the step in the plan and then click on the Clear Step button. To
insert a step,
click on the step in the plan and then click on another direction

The objective of this task is to plan a path that moves the ladybug
through the maze. Click on the direction buttons to help the ladybug
plan the path it should take to move through the maze without crossing
the walls. Click the "Play" button to see if your plan works. Try some
of the other mazes.
develop proficiency in navigating with the ladybug, they can create
navigational plans that will move the ladybug through a maze. This
process enables them to apply strategies learned in the other
activities. To assess students' understanding of direction and distance,
as well as their problem-solving strategies, teachers might ask the
a plan to move the ladybug through a maze offers different challenges
that are more difficult than those in the previous activities. Students
must make a plan that will turn the ladybug at the appropriate corners
and keep it on the path without crossing the walls. Because the applet
allows students to modify one step in their plan, to begin with a new
set of directions, and to execute their plans step by step or in their
entirety, students have some flexibility in how they can approach the
task while they gain experience in estimating length and turn (angle)
