I teach science classes at an urban high school that is very diverse. These students will choose various pathways after graduation, including finding a career or attending some sort of college.
My students come from low-income families of various backgrounds and often have personal struggles they work very hard to overcome while working on their academic studies.
The students in my classroom include English learners and those struggling with disabilities. Our students require many hands-on activities including lab experiments that allow them to explore new aspects of the science world.
My students use LEGOs often in the high school science classroom, especially when it comes to tougher lessons. Having something to manipulate or work with aids in the learning process. I want to provide students with all learning styles and abilities the chance to understand the lessons being taught. LEGOs will not only help with being a visual to manipulate; they will keep students engaged as well.
My students need LEGOs to help them visualize topics like DNA in biology, or stoichiometry in chemistry in order to complete learning objectives.
The topics that are usually difficult to manage on pen and paper will now be able to come alive in the form of a physical object that the students can work with.
