My classroom is not defined by the four walls that surround us. Our learning goes well beyond those walls. We are inventors, researchers, creators, collaborators, philanthropists, technophiles, and scholars. My students are always reaching for more ways to learn.
My business and technology classes have students from various grade levels, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and academic capabilities.
These students come together in such an amazing way to create real results. They support each other unconditionally and really have a desire to change the world around them.
To increase the Makerspace opportunities in my classroom, my students need Lego baseplates, bricks, adhesive, and a caulking gun to construct a Lego wall. The wall would be constructed to be on display at all times, becoming a permanent part of our classroom. Students would be able to express their creativity, build structures, collaborate with students in other classes, and admire their own handiwork on display.
Do you look back on your own childhood and smile when you think about building something with Legos?
I do! My students do! Everyone does! Whether it's a collaborative project to build a specific structure, or just a few moments to get out the wiggles and express some creativity, a Lego wall in my classroom would do wonders for my students. Donations to this project will help my students build structures and wonderful memories!
