Need an engaging library center with robots and coding for K-4?
This center adds a little structure as it helps kids explore the award-winning Ozobot!
The resource includes:
1) Nonfiction text in PowerPoint form
that describes the Ozobot's hardware and explains how to
program the robot using markers to draw color codes and lines.
Project the PPT to introduce the center to your classes.
Print the PPT as a center booklet for older students to read independently. (One of the exit tickets
can be used to assess understanding.)
2) Ten task cards
to give the center some structure while allowing exploration.
- Some task card items come with the Ozobot (can be purchased from their website,
from Amazon, or from DEMCO.)
- Other task card materials are free downloads (links included).
- Maze-building items can be gathered from things you may already own, such as small, plastic
cups, leftover fast-food toys, blocks, and building bricks.
3) Two exit tickets
- One simply helps the students track "YES/NO" progress through the task cards.
- The other checks for understanding of the nonfiction text.
4) ONE beginner’s template
for K-1 -- with a simplified color code card.
for set-up wthi a supply list.
