Instruction Guide: EV3 - Turning with My Blocks

Printer-friendly version

This lesson has two resources.

The primary instructional materials are the PowerPoint/pdf files and EV3 Code files from EV3Lessons.

The PowerPoint (and pdf version) contains all the information needed for the lesson.  The corresponding EV3 Code file includes all the code need for the lesson, broken down into steps.  The EV3 Code is included as screen shots. Sometimes, additional helpful tips are included the PowerPoint.  Students should use both materials.

  1. Students should then use the PowerPoint file along with the EV3 code file.
  2. It is important that students read the comments.
  3. The lesson is split into stages to simplify the code creation process.

Ensure students can explain the purpose and functionality of each phase (and My Block) in the development of their program.

Once students have created their My Block program, give them a movement challenge where they only get one or two attempts to complete the challenge after measuring the required distances and turn angles.
