With the rise of Maker movement, Maker Education has been developing quickly around the world. However, there is a lack of systematical and effective curriculum of Maker Education in basic education schools, which can not meet the needs of students’ age and personality development, resulting in students’ lack of creativity and practical ability. In the light of this situation, this paper integrates robot curriculum which is the extension course of information technology curriculum in primary school with the subject curriculum according to the requirements of the Development of Chinese Students’ Core Literacy and the National Curriculum Standards of Information Technology in Basic Education Schools. The instructional design has been made, the course system and teaching mode of the robot curriculum are initially given and the robot curriculum and assessment has been carried out. This research provides reference resources for Maker Education in the basic education schools.
