Do you start a 5th-grade student with both a complex EV3 robot assembly and a complex EV3 robot program? My answer is no. You should start the student with simple EV3 projects, as provided in this PowerPoint presentation.
Eighteen (18) simple EV3 programs -- which are based upon fourteen different EV3 programming blocks -- were created for my 5th-grade grandson, Nathan, in order to help him make the transition from NXT 2.0 programming to EV3 programming. The programming blocks include Start, Stop, Timer, Wait, Sound, Display, Brick Status Lock, Touch Sensor, Loop, Large Motor, Medium Motor, Switch, Move Steering, and Move Tank.
I also provide palette images of the 7 action blocks, 5 flow blocks, 11 sensor blocks, 10 data blocks and 9 advanced blocks.
