Goals and Standards

Goals

Students will apply

  • How to instruct the 123 Robot to travel to the treasure on a class map using the Coder and Coder cards.

Students will make meaning of

  • How to break down the steps needed to solve a problem, such as programming the 123 Robot to move on a map in an intentional way. 
  • How instructions need to be in a precise sequence in order to complete a task successfully, such as navigating the Robot from Start to the treasure on a map.

Students will be skilled at

  • Creating a programming project using the Coder, Coder cards and the 123 Robot.

Students will know

  • How to use the Coder and Coder cards to program the 123 Robot to complete a task.
  • How the order of the Coder cards is the order of the behaviors performed by the 123 Robot.

Objective(s)

Objective

  1. Students will decompose the steps needed to program their 123 Robot to move from the start to the treasure on a map.
  2. Students will sequence actions in a precise order to program the 123 Robot to move to the treasure on the map using the Coder.  
  3. Students will explain the importance of sequencing steps in a precise order in order to complete a task.
     

Activity

  1. In Play Part 1, the teacher will use the Coder and cards to break-down the steps required to program the 123 Robot to successfully move from the start to the treasure, while avoiding obstacles, on a map created with 123 Tiles.  
  2. In Play Part 2, groups will sequence commands using the Coder cards to successfully navigate their 123 Robot to the treasure on the map. They will check the order of these commands by using the step function on the Coder.
  3. During Engage, the teacher will lead a discussion on the significance of sequencing steps in order to correctly complete a task.
     

Assessment

  1. In Play Part 2, students will share the  Coder cards to decompose the steps necessary to program their 123 Robot from start to the treasure on the new map.  They will be encouraged to share their projects on the Coder with other groups throughout Play Part 2 and Active Share. 
  2. In the Active Share, students will show they can successfully sequence the 123 Robot to the treasure on the map, by showing their Coder, and  their 123 Robot will execute the project.   
  3. In Mid-Play Break, students will discuss the importance of sequencing steps in a precise order to complete a task.
