My Students

Motivating young students to think creatively and collaborate with their peers can be a challenge. One of the best methods of getting students to do both successfully can be summed up in one word: LEGOS!

I teach in a K-5, high-poverty elementary school in Indiana.

My school has approximately 330 students, and received an A+ grade from the state DOE last school year. Our school has a high rate of parent involvement, with many of our families being generational families.

My Project

Students in grades K-2 will be using these materials for our school's annual Lego League. Each year, students anticipate the week-long workshop which focuses on creating with Legos. Approximately 75% of K-2 students participate in this program, which meets twice a year. These materials, Lego Education set, a Hue Animation Studio, and a wireless microphone, will be used as part of rotating activities the students will be participating in.

This project will be very far-reaching for students in our school.

Lego League is not only fun for our students, but this activity allows students to use real-life skills--critical thinking, creating, and collaboration--in a school setting.
