Help me give my students LEGO Architecture sets to build city skylines to compare the area, perimeter, height and learn of other places in the world.
My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, with a hunger to learn, and excited for what they will discover on their own for the day. I ask them, "What do you want to learn?" because I want them to know their hunger will be satisfied. I like my students to know they are in charge of their learning and have the ability to do anything they set their mind to.
I teach in an urban, low socio-economic area.
All of my students receive free lunch. My students are humble and enthusiastic about learning. They don't have much sometimes at home, but they would give you anything they had to offer. They love school and they love the safe environment school provides for them.
Many of my students sign up for after school programs, in which they are selected by lottery. Despite language barriers, financial status, limited technology available at home and a highly populated school, my students still show a desire to learn and do their best.
My students learn about area, perimeter and height in math in third grade. I am seeking the Architecture sets to help them compare the size of the different city skylines and see why these math skills are so important in the real world.
Through building with LEGOs, my students will learn math as well as about cities throughout the world.
After building the skylines my students will find the above mentioned dimensions and then research what the buildings are, who designed them and the cities they are in. This will enhance my students math and interpersonal skills. They will work in small groups and then present their skyline to the rest of the students.
