EXCEL Lego Challenge
March 27, 2015
We have thoroughly enjoyed our Lego students! As EXCELebration on March 27 approaches, we would like to describe our last Lego project in detail.
Your child will choose a topic and research this topic using library books, the Internet, and/or magazines. Most students want to go right to Wikipedia but we suggest using other more reliable sources. Encourage your student to jot down a few notes as he or she reads. Your child should then write a report about what they learned. This report can be handwritten or typed.
The guidelines for length of report are as follows:
1st grade: 3 or 4 complete sentences
2nd grade: 5-6 complete sentences
3rd grade: 1-2 paragraphs
4th and 5th grade: 2-3 paragraphs
The report should include the child’s name, grade, and the title of the paper.
After writing the report, the student should create a Lego project about the chosen topic.
The Lego project and paper should be brought to EXCEL Friday morning, March 27. They will present their project in class and they and their project will be photographed to be placed in a slide show that will be shown during EXCELabration. We, their teachers, will choose three projects per class (for a total of 12 projects) to be on display at EXCELabration. Unfortunately, due to limitations on space and the large number of projects, we cannot display all of the Lego projects at EXCELabration.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this challenge! We look forward to seeing their creations.
