Love these little robots.
The OZOBOT site has great tutorials and lesson ideas. You can code the OZOBOT in using colour markers or using block coding with OzoBlocky
CREATE ADVENTURES AND GAMES FOR OZOBOT TO EXPLORE.
Begin by learning Ozobot’s simple color language as you draw mazes, paths, intersections and create entire worlds to explore puzzling playgrounds, fast tracks and intricate labyrinths. with colour markers. I liked the shape tracer 1 & 2 in OzoBlocky.
USE BLOCK CODING FOR FULL CONTROL
OzoBlockly gives you the power to fully control your Ozobot's movement and behavior. Powered by Google’s Blockly, OzoBlockly offers five modes from
Pre-Reader with icon-based blocks to Master with support for many low-level functions and advanced programming concepts. It has something for everyone!

1. Create a story map – plan it out so you know where the robot will stop spin, or speedup.
2. Draw your story map with illustrations and coding in the tracks.
3. Include at least 2 of the following
Tornado: A command to spin around twice at increasing speed, then continue following the line in the same direction.
Zigzag: A command to sway right-left-right-left while moving forward, then continue moving straight.
Spin: A command to spin around twice at a consistent speed, then continue following the line in the same direction.
Win/Exit (Play Again): A command to perform a “success” animation, then continue to follow the line
4. Write a script for your story map.
5. Film OZOBOT on your story map and read the script as a voice over.
