Harold the Robot from Computer Science Unplugged

http://csunplugged.org/index.php/en/harold-the-robot

In this activity children simply give directions to a “robot” (either an adult or another child) and find out which instructions the robot is able to follow, and how their instructions are taken literally.
This simple but effective activity was invented at a workshop for Postgrad Computer Science students in April 2008
