Introducing Robots to your students can be intimidating. I know, I was these a few years ago. Yes, there are lots of supports out there but I found most of them either too basic or too over whelming! Now that I have made it up my own learning curve, I want to share my knowledge with you with the documents I wish I had starting out...
First, I created a set of student challenge cards for an individually paced EV3 curriculum that integrates critical thinking skill into the robotics experience. Each challenge builds on the previous challenges to develop a rich understanding of programming through experience. You can find that product here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/LEGO-MindStorm-critical-thinking-EV3-Robot-Challenge-Task-Cards-Set-A-3460801
This resource is the teacher "cheat sheet" to shorten your own learning curve! It is NOT designed to be shared with students but rather to build your knowledge of programming EV3 so you can support you students critical thinking skills without spending HOURS watching youtube videos, wading through programming manuals and trial and error.
Included are annotated screen shots for each of the 6 Level A student challenges. Learn to use move blocks, sensors, loops, switches, displays and sounds!
The task cards and teacher resource are available in a bundle for great $2 savings!
