How to Teach ELA with Ozobot (10 Free Lessons!)

Over the years, educators have seen the ways that Ozobot can be used beyond coding and Computer Science to bring STEAM to any subject. However, educators are still often surprised at how seamlessly Ozobot can be incorporated into English Language Arts (or ELA) classrooms! We get quite a few recommendation requests for ELA lessons, so we are very proud to say that we have 66 high-quality lessons/activities for ELA in our Lesson Library

It would take way too many pages to list every single one, so we’ve put together a shorter list for you to get excited about using Ozobot to teach ELA. 

Coding Plot Diagrams in ELA!

Color Codes
Grades K-5

Student teams will work together to identify important story elements in a familiar text, then develop a plot diagram using Ozobot Color Codes.

Evo or Bit Help Students Give Clear Directions in Procedural Writing

Color Codes or OzoBlockly
Grades 2-5

This lesson uses Evo or Bit to help students learn about and fine tune their procedural writing.  Students will design a program for Evo or Bit to follow, test it, and then write up clear directions for someone else to recreate their exact program. They will then swap directions with their partner and try to recreate their program design by following their written directions. One more reason to get excited about this lesson: it can be completed with either Color Codes or OzoBlockly!

Pop Star|Creating Functions With Ozobot Color Codes|Created for the Hour of Code

Color Codes
Grades 2-8

Students will be introduced to a core coding concept—functions—by using screen-free Color Codes to represent them! This lesson is a part of our new Core Coding Curriculum, which is organized by grade level and covers five fundamental coding concepts: Sequencing, Loops, Advanced Sequences & Loops, Conditional Statements, Functions, and Variables. Educators don’t need any previous coding or computer science knowledge to get started! Introduce your students to Ozobot and start building their 21st century skills.

Digital Citizen Pathways

Color Codes
Grades 1-3

In this lesson, students will learn what it means to be a good digital citizen and guide Ozobots safely through the “web.”
