There is a misconception that Legos are only for small children, but there are many possibilities for Legos at the secondary level as well. Here are 5 ways we have used Legos in the Makerspace to support curriculum.
2. Social Studies- Create a historical building or landmark. We created Spanish Missions to support Texas History TEKS. Students had to create a mission with at least eight different aspects common to a mission and explain their choices in a Flipgrid video.
3. Spanish- Pratice Spanish vocabulary. Create a room in a house with at least three objects that the room would have, and explain them in Spanish in a Flipgrid video.
4. Science- Create a marble run when the marble travels for eight seconds. Then, measure the distance, and figure out the speed.
5. ELA- Create a Lego Stop Motion Video to show an important scene from your self choice novel. We use a Hue Animation Studio stop motion camera, but there are many free options as well.
