#legopedagogy starts

Ok so I have two boxes of lego in my classroom, we have been teaching for 8 days and…

So far, a few weird looks from some colleagues and some pupils. I have introduced / re-introduced my 8 KS3 geography classes to SOLO taxonomy using the YouTube video that includes Lego. This year though I get to play along with the video by introducing the appropriate single blue block, then a handful of bricks as we move from unistructural to multistructural ideas. Some anecdotal ideas like last year about small children and Lego use to hit, insert, eat. For extended abstract I make a simple model randomly as they watch the clip.

Next week I start to experiment with some of the graphing ideas others have passed on for the year 8 unit on population.
