This Odyssey of the Mind Curriculum Activity: My Robot and Me lesson plan also includes:
Robots and their interactions with their human counterparts are the catalyst for a fun writing instructional activity. First, the class brainstorms what they'd like to have their personal robot do or be capable of. Then, they each write a humorous story about life with their robot. Each child reads his story to the class in order to practice content delivery and public speaking skills. A class discussion about delivering humorous content follows student readings.
