Navigating a Map for PreK and Kindergarten

I saw a really cool lesson plan for 1st graders on programming Dash to move around.  I wanted to emulate the same thing to my PreK’er using tools she could grasp.  So we taped off trails for Dash on the floor.  We started with a start and a finish line, and ended up with a 90 degree angle and a house.  Using “Path” we were able to draw a line to match the line on the floor and then make Dash follow the line.  It took us several tries to get right on the right angle and the house, but we adjusted and kept trying again.
