WeDo Lego Inquiry Based Project Update #4
Today we focused on the programming aspect of the WeDo Lego kits. Prior to beginning the lesson, we gave the students some information about a few key programming blocks and then set the challenge. Something that caught my eye as I was circulating, was one of my students was taking notes on a small notepad. Never have I asked the children to take notes... generally they just listen. When I asked this little girl what she was doing, she replied "I am taking notes like a good scientist. It will help me remember the steps!" My heart did a happy dance! This is what is all about... She is was deeply connecting to the big idea of this unit! The Lego is just a tool that we are using to discover what makes a great scientist!
