Fairy tale and Robotics

By François Trégouët

Fairy tale and Robotics

Do you know The Three Little Pigs? Like most people you must have read the story or seen the cartoon. Our PK2 students created a new version of it, using tiny robots: the Ozobots. The principle is simple: the robot  follows any traced line on paper, representing a drawing, an art piece or… a fairy tale character’s path. Children were able to place all the elements from The Three Little Pigs on a large sheet of paper (spatial orientation), to trace the wolf’s route (memorization and story segmentation), and to narrate the tale live, observing the robot-wolf literally moving along the story (oral skills). How exciting it was to create an animated RoboTale, moving in front of our eyes!
