Lego Bag Building

As many of you know I also run our afterschool Lego club. I’m always on the look out for interesting Lego activities that will be new and different for the kiddos.  Well, my co-Lego teacher, Mr. M shared this fun idea and the kiddos had a blast. 

We used these Lego kits:

Each box has 3 different builds.  Mr. M pulled the Legos and instructions for each build and placed them in a baggie.  So.. each box will work for 3 separate builds.  

The students could take the instructions out of the bag, but NO Legos.  Students had to build the object by manipulating the Legos in the bag from the outside of the bag. 

They loved it and got pretty quick at it.  They were begging for more!!!

If I Could Turn Back Time...

If I could turn back time...

I wouldn’t have waited so long to integrate these super fun time teaching activities  nto my lessons.  Holy Cow! Game Changer!  My kiddos loved time headbandz.  One player put a digital time in their headband and their partner made the time on their analog clock.  The headband wearer read the time their partner made.  If the time they said matched the flash card in their headband they got to keep the card.  My kids loved this. Plus, there were lots of teachable moments between partners.
