The LEGO® SPIKE™ Essential lessons are organized into themed units that emphasize different aspects of STEAM. The lessons progress in difficulty within each unit and build toward a culminating open-ended project in which students can spotlight their creativity and learning.
The 5E Instructional Model
Every LEGO® Education lesson follows the 5E Instructional Model—Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate. This model reflects constructivist theory. It’s widely used and well-proven as a very effective model for STEAM learning. To see this approach in action, visit the LEGO Education professional development platform and watch the product support video tutorial, which includes a guided lesson—or review any lesson plan in the online lesson library.
