What are you thankful for? Here at Ozobot, we’re thankful for educators who continue to show up every single day to teach the next generation of creators. Your hard work and dedication is so appreciated and will impact your students’ lives in so many ways!
The month of November is all about gratitude and reflecting upon the things in our lives that we care about, but may often take for granted.
We love to see educators using Ozobots in their classrooms, especially during this time. Check out some of our favorite Thanksgiving-themed OzoThings below.
Ozobot + Macy’s Parade
It’s one of our most popular lessons and it’s back! Van Meter Schools’ TK and Kindergarten classrooms got together to complete the Balloons Over Broadway lesson. What’s not to love when you mix robots with balloons?!
We know what you are thinking, but there isn’t any running involved with this activity…well, at least not for humans!Mrs. San Roman’s third graders designed a turkey costume for their Evo, then used Color Codes to escape hungry farmers. This looks like so much fun!
Balloons Over Broadway
Get ready for a lot of Balloons Over Broadway lessons! We weren’t kidding when we said it was one of our most popular, and for good reason. Ms. Rosie’s students were tasked with a 10 minute build challenge and created book characters for their parade. Awesome!
Run, Turkey, Run
These kinder-coders listened to the story Run Turkey Run and then used Color Codes to create a path for their turkey bot to escape the farmer. They also video recorded their projects and uploaded them to Seesaw for their parents to see!
Shannon Miller’s TK/Kindergarteners also joined in on the Balloons Over Broadway fun! We love seeing all the different floats and the smiling faces of the students as they engage with Ozobot and learn.
Mr. Jones’ first graders read Turkey Trouble, then participated in a number of challenges with Ozobot, as it related to the story, including building a turkey hideout and completing a Color Code maze.
Thank you to all our educators who shared their students’ creations. We love the ideas and creativity. Keep the wonderful ideas coming, and be sure to share your creations with us on social media using @Ozobot or #Ozobot for a chance to be featured. Stay tuned for next month’s OzoThings post!
