STEM Lesson Plan & Activities - EDISON ROBOT Year 5
Lesson 1: Introduction to Edison Robotics
- Explore the functions and use maps and barcodes.
Lesson 2: Introduce Edublocks and explore transferring code from computer to Edison.
Lesson 3: Problem:
Mathematics: You must use an Edison Robot to draw mathematical problems for your peers to solve. Eg. Draw a track which another group would then need to measure. Groups would need to consider how they would measure (zigzag line drawn by Edison – string/informal units etc)
Art: You must use an Edison Robot to create a piece of abstract art.
Literacy: You must use an Edison Robot to create a story map which relates to a journey a character takes in a story.
- Students will have access to Lego in order to construct a ‘gripping’ tool to hold the pencil.
Lesson 4: Design process (6 D Process).
Lesson 5: Construct gripping tool using the Lego.
Lesson 6: Combine with Edison to trial.
Lesson 7: Create and test design.
Lesson 8: Students must create their own lesson plans using their Edison and ‘gripping tool’. They must integrate another subject area and solve a problem.
