PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit was designed as an introduction to robotics since many of the students are unfamiliar with robotics. Many students see robots as only being a toy, but this unit was developed to show them the multiple uses and fields in which robotics are used every day. The lessons were developed to help students develop higher order thinking skills, group-building activities, technology, inter/intrapersonal skills, and learning skills from the Autonomous Learner Model. Throughout the unit, multiple opportunities arise for students to have differentiated curriculum. Many of the lessons include group work in which students will be ability grouped to increase the likelihood of higher order thinking, including the final activity in which students create robotic arms in a group and assignments where students will do additional research in areas of robotics that are interesting to them.

I use this as introduction to using Lego Mindstorms NXT-G series or the EV3 series since many of my students are unfamiliar with the multiple uses of robotics in society. The unit was originally developed during a gifted and talent education teacher certification course on curriculum and received the highest of marks.
