Help me give my students a Lego wall! We have slowly been building a MakerSpace within our building we refer to as the "WonderLab". This space is constantly evolving as a place for students to come and discover.
Our school is comprised of a truly diverse population. We have students in our classrooms who have come from all over the world and we acknowledge the various cultures and experiences they are able to bring into our building.
When looking through the window into our school, what do you see?
Teachers and students laughing, learning, and loving. We try to make learning fun for every child in an atmosphere that is nurturing and supportive of each child's abilities. In addition to the traditional curriculum we follow that the state provides we are working towards adding areas that make learning relevant to today's society.
The name LEGO is an abbreviation of the two Danish words, "leg godt", meaning "play well". We would like to build a Lego wall in our WonderLab space where students learn to collaborate on projects and create.
Legos are a timeless classic for creativity, building, and fun.
Kids of all ages enjoy this magnificent toy. For many, Legos come with with a set of instructions and a product to build. Other times, kids have free reign on their creativity in order to build something new and different.
In our school's MakerSpace, Legos are a staple in our building station. Kids can create whatever they wish with Legos and even integrate those Legos and even integrate those Legos with other materials for their project. With the inspiration of others online and on TV, we decided to put our Legos on the wall. Putting Legos on the wall not only is something new and different for our kids to experience, but it is also a space saver. Students can build on the wall, creating interesting artwork, simply creating anything new with Legos.
