Open your box and follow these instructions:
Apply the stickers to the correct corners of each sorting tray.
Apply the big sticker to the inside of the blue box.
Apply the blank sticker to the outside of the box.
Label each set with a unique name or number.
Open the bags and sort the bricks into the trays. Bags without numbers go in the bottom of the blue box.
Store the boxes of replacement elements until they're needed.
- Sets: Unpack, sort, label, and number the sets.
- Storage: Consider how to conveniently store the sets (e.g., cabinet or wheeled cart). Store replacement packs separately for when elements go missing.
- Tools: Gather tape, yardsticks, cardboard, scissors, and student handouts.
- Space: Clear the tables for working. Use the floor for testing and running programs.
- Lesson planning: Run through a lesson as if you were a student. Refine and prepare to teach the lesson to your students.
- Rules: Create classroom rules for hands-on work (e.g., only use elements from one set, use storage box lids as trays for working on/presenting/transporting models, ask peers for help first, guidelines for speaking/listening vs. working).
- Tidy-up: Reserve time for students to store or disassemble their creations.
- Lost & found: Create a “lost & found” jar for LEGO® elements found on the floor. Students missing an element should look in the jar.
- Evaluation: Evaluate your lessons and reflect on the experience. Compare notes with a colleague or search social media for tips and tricks.
- Checking & sorting: Regularly check and sort the sets. Use the element overview on ''side 2'' of the top card inside the storage box as a checklist.
- Exploration: Allow time for your students to explore the set and its elements.
- Grouping: Decide the best way to group your students for effective collaborative learning
Example: See how one teacher groups her students for successful collaboration.
