What a hit! The students absolutely LOVE programming the tiny Ozobots! These are small robots that are programmable using color codes, the Ozobot app or the online Ozoblockly block-based program. What I love about these is that they can be adapted to several ages.
One first grade class entered the room, immediately noticed the Ozobots on each table, and suddenly I heard, “Oh, Oh, Oh, we get to do Ozobots!” This little boy was practically dancing with excitement; even rushing over to give me a hug.
Here’s an example:
These fourth grade students did a fantastic job with their explanations. I see a future in sales!
Ozobots are a fun and easy way to introduce computational thinking to children. It’s easy to adapt these robots to any age.
