Must be a reader! Look for lesson plans with screeshots on the web.

How I Use It
Students used Cargo Bot as one option in Coding class. It was great for the 3-5 but our non-readers found difficulty although this product was recommended to us as an elementary app during a conference. Non-readers are unable to read the tutorial prompts so there is a ton of one on one support. I did a search on the net for Cargo Bot lessons and there are a couple of people who have created screen shots and created laminated versions for students to pre-plan their moves.
My Take
This product is game like and so the students want to 'beat' the next level. This makes the coding that much more fun.
