STORY RETELLING WITH OZOBOT

Ashley Schmidt illustates using Ozobot to retell a story

  • Retell a story using transition words (In the beginning, then, next, the problem is, and finally) and a story map. Code your Ozobot to retell the story in the correct order using at least 3 codes.
  • Given events that happen in a story, have students create a route that puts the events in the correct sequence using at least 4 different codes.
  • Create a dialogue between two characters in the story. Write a code to navigate the conversation.

LIFE CYCLES WITH OZOBOT

Ashley Schimdt illustrates how she uses ozobot to code life cycles

  • Create a diagram of the water cycle. Include the words: precipitation, evaporation, and condensation. Put a picture clue next to each word. Use at least two direction codes.
  • Can you create a (butterfly, deer, plant, chicken, etc.) life cycle for your Ozobot to travel along? Use important vocabulary words for each stage and draw a picture. Use at least 3 different codes or more.
  • Can you create a food chain with at least 5 different parts. Draw a picture of each part of your food chain and label it. Use at least five different codes!

BLACK HISTORY

In this lesson students will read clues to identify five different influential people in Black history and draw a picture to show a major event for each. Students will create an interactive timeline using Color Codes to program their bot to move through history.
