This class is designed to give students the opportunity to design with the use of Legos and early development of engineering techniques and patterning for math procedures. Through the use of Legos in small group, active labs and activities in the classroom. Legos can be utilized by students in groups or individually with satisfaction and experimentation of lab activities. Journaling of experiences using Legos can be productive and educational for all levels of students. Simply put, having your classroom under perfect control brings the joy back to teaching. Learning but creating that atmosphere is the hard part. "Play is the highest and most divine offering” Tibetan
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

- Increase their understanding of shapes or objects needed to construct.
- Participate in class discussions and activities.
- Manipulate Legos in a learning environment and share with others.
- Identify how to incorporate Legos use into science and math class.
