WeDo 2.0 encourages students to put those aspects of scientific discovery to work by solving real STEAM problems. Using LEGO Bricks, sensors, and motors, students can use this solution to ignite their creativity, develop critical-thinking skills, explore career possibilities, and simply get hands-on STEAM experience.
This set helps make abstract engineering and concepts concrete and improves student’s collaboration, problem-solving, and computational thinking skills. WeDo 2.0 is a hands-on solution that helps teach STEAM concepts in an engaging, discovery-based way. Designed with collaboration in mind, this set combines LEGO bricks with classroom-friendly software to introduce students to science, engineering, and computational principles.
Built on the latest science standards, this unit plan promotes investigation and experimentation in life, physical, earth, and space sciences.
This unit plan gives teachers an engaging hand-on way of introducing engineering, technology, and computing projects.
Computational thinking is a way of solving problems computationally. This unit plan promotes skills such as distilling problems into smaller tasks, performing actions in the right order, evaluating solutions, and communicating ideas in simple and creative ways.
This unit plan combines the STEAM elements of WeDo 2.0 with the creative freedom of the maker. These open-ended activities invite students to question, create, tinker, make, innovate, and remake again while exploring early coding and more.
Simple Machines gets student’s creative wheels turning with the engaging simple machines set. It teaches the basic mechanical principles behind gears, pulleys, levers, axles, and more. Digital tools and unit plans help lounge student engagement to the next level. Simple machines help students investigate and understand the operation of simple and compound machines. This set features an assortment of brick, gears, wheels, pulleys, and levers to inspire students to explore science and engineering. The simple machines unit plan includes twenty lessons with instructions for a variety of models and problem-solving activities. As students work through lessons they will develop critical thinking skills while investigating simple and compound machines.
Simple machines maker unit plan introduces elementary school children to the hands-on creative freedom of maker. Using open-ended questions and real-life scenarios, students can think up ideas, tinker with prototypes, build and develop solutions using the lego education simple machines core set, and other materials from around the classroom. Through worksheets and assessments, students can feel supported and inspired and teachers can have the creative confidence to help students think up new ideas. The number of teaching lessons in simple machines is 20 and the duration of lessons is 45-90 minutes. One group can have a maximum of six children.
