Mr. Ozobot is Visiting Our Room
My students need these to learn about coding and create a school and neighborhood community using the ozobots.
My second graders are made up of mostly all english language learners (90% or hispanics) and come from homes consisting of 7 or more family members. Their home lives are in constant chaos. The median income is far below poverty level. Some have the sole responsibilities of taking care of their younger siblings while the parents are at work. Others are latchkey children. Our school is Title 1 and 90% of the children receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunches. Our children come from low socio economic background and below poverty line. Our school is situated in a highly crime infested area where it is surrounded by a low income housing complex. My children have limited access to technology in their homes.
By having access to the ozobots, my students can learn how to code and apply this toward map reading. Coding introduces critical thinking and problem solving. This is very important for the future of our children. I feel it is important to expose my students through doing different STEM activities. For this STEM project, my students will design their neighborhood community and program these ozobots (using the color markers) so that they can roam specific areas within their community. They will also learn the four cardinal directions using the ozobots. Then they will present what they have created to the class. This also allows them to collaborate and see the project through. The children will also discover fun and innovative ways to learn how these robots function through trials and errors.
