Lesson Plans

Standards-aligned Lessons

Our LEGO® Education SPIKE Prime STEAM lesson plans are designed to help students develop the abstract and critical thinking skills they need to solve complex problems. The standards-aligned STEAM lessons provide a variety of learning experiences that relate directly back to students’ real-life questions and observations, building their confidence and preparing them for life beyond school.

Mini STEAM set for kids

“For those students who have no experience with text-based coding or never thought that this was something that they would be interested in they have really enjoyed coding with Python. To me, that is very powerful to make what can be a difficult concept to learn (text-based coding) accessible for every student. I was quite surprised to see this as not every 8th grader is able to pick up a language fairly easily, but the majority of them are!”

Ryan Riess, LEGO® Education Ambassador and Technology and Engineering Teacher, William Annin Middle School, Basking Ridge, NJ
