I have implemented a period of Lego Challenge each day. Students are given an open-ended task that allows them to find their own solution to the challenges placed before them. The active group engagement of students in problem solving encourages them to connect to their own interests and motivations. Students are encouraged to work together as a group to create one project.
The core of every LEGO task involves building. By actively learning through tactile experience, students construct knowledge in their minds. Students also construct knowledge with others in group settings, where collaboration extends their learning even further.
