ELS17 – Recognise actions (EV3)

ELS17 – Recognise actions (EV3)

Lego Mindstorms EV3 v 1.2.1 for EV3 Firmware version 1.09H


The student must recognise the actions on the verb picture cards. It can be delivered in a number of ways as described in ELS17 of the Edurob curriculum document, and summarised below.

  1. The teacher shows the students the verb-card ( stand, walk, drink, eat, play, etc.) and asks the question, “What is he/she/it doing?” The robot rewards correct answers with a student appropriate reward behaviour.
  2. Three verb cards are face down on the table (dance, walk, sing ). The robot commands, “take a card. Then the robot asks, “What is he/she/it doing?” If the student gives the correct answer, the robot will perform the action (NAO) or play an appropriate sound (EV3).
  3. The verbs cards are on the table. The robot says: “Take a card. What is he doing?” If the student gives correct answer, the teacher will ask the student to perform the action. The robot rewards actions with a student appropriate reward behaviour.

The EV3 can perform the following separate programs for action sounds (EV3_ELS17):
Program path: “ELS17/randomanimal” – random animal sound from the following list or use the followimg paths for specifics.
Program path: “ELS17/whataction – Says, “What action are they doing?”
Program path: “ELS17/pickone – Says, “Pick one of the cards.”
And sound effect files can be played with:
Program path: “ELS17/walk”
Program path: “ELS17/run”
Program path: “ELS17/skip”
Program path: “ELS17/play”
Program path: “ELS17/sing”
Program path: “ELS17/dance”
Program path: “ELS17/eat”
Program path: “ELS17/drink”
