Instruction Guide: EV3 - Color Line Follower with My Blocks

Printer-friendly version

This lesson has four resources; two each for the distance and color controlled versions of the lesson.

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 programs, give them a color line following challenge (old FLL mats work great) and let them demonstrate with different distances and terminating line colors.
