Educational Play That Harnesses Limitless Creative Possibilities
Help me give my students an experience they will never forget with hands-on activities in the classroom to an incredible field trip to LEGO Land that will allow them to extend their learning beyond the class.
I teach 30 ambitious and energetic critical thinkers. These wonderful scholars come from the toughest neighborhoods in Chicago, but they are not discouraged by what they see and experience. They come to school daily (97% attendance rate) with high hopes of learning and being engaged with all the world has to offer. It is truly a pleasure teaching these future leaders.
Our focus on self-control, teamwork, integrity, commitment, and kindness allows our students a safe space to explore with confidence and determination.
Our curriculum is differentiated so that every child can reach their fullest potential.
Students will venture out to Legoland where they can explore, play, and learn the many aspects of science and engineering. In this workshop, students will build a series of models and experiment with gears exploring the difference between drive vs. driven gears, clockwise vs. counter-clockwise, and discovering the concepts of effort and force.
This field trip is an opportunity for my students, who are all persons of color, to experience what it is like to apply hands-on learning across the curriculum.
This including science, mathematics, language arts, technology, and engineering design, while building and reinforcing Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving.
