Part of Lesson Plan: Programming Tasks on the NXT Block
Activity Overview / Details
As the warm up have this image or presentation slide (depending on what format you prefer) projected on the board to check for understanding from yesterday’s lesson on “Know your Sensors”. Give the students a couple of minutes to pull out a piece of paper and pencil and have them write down the answers. After the students have written down their answers have them turn to a neighbor and share with each other what the name of the sensors are and what ports they are assigned to. Before moving on quickly have a class discussion to make sure everyone got it. Remember to hand back the sensors handout from yesterday’s lesson so that they can use it as a guide when connecting the sensors to the ports for today’s activities.
