Crazy About Ozobot Coding

My students need Ozobots so each group can code during projects! The paint, cardboard scissors, and Exacto knives are used to design projects out of cardboard for the Ozobot tracks.

My Students

My students are scientists, designers, engineers, artists, coders, and problem solvers. Using their minds in and out of the classroom to accomplish their goals is important to them.

My students need opportunities to fail so that they can pick themselves up and attain true success.

The diverse nature of my class shows that not all students learn in the same way. Each child brings unique strengths to the classroom. My students are capable of great things, but need to be pushed further to reach their full potential.

My Project

Ozobots are mini robots that follow color codes or use Ozoblockly on the computer to make the robots move in different ways. The robots allow students to get frustrated, problem solve to find new solutions, and finally reach success through hard work and perseverance.

Through a multidisciplinary unit, students use the technology to code the robot to tell a story.

They will create or rewrite a fairy tale, design an artistic view of the setting, and code the robot to show the movements and emotions of the main character. Collaboration is key while creating these high quality group projects.

The project allows the students to think outside the box during the design phase as they use everyday materials to set the scene. Cardboard is the main building material, but students incorporate every day items to enhance the scenery. Whether they use markers and color coded lines to make movements or use the computer program Ozoblockly to code online, the students create an interactive reading experience that they will share with the primary students in our building.
