I am so excited about this learning opportunity for my students. This abstract concept will become concrete for my kiddos. My students will work collaboratively to design and plan a freewheeler to carry a load using the instructions from the LEGO kits. They will present their freewheelers for the class using 30 Hands. I find that whenever I incorporate hands-on learning with such an abstract concept like this, my students not only get the learning, but it's so memorable for them. The LEGO kits will give that extra boost that my science lesson wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to.
