I was put in charge of Children's day at the International School I work at in Vietnam. Here is my Powerpoint slideshow that goes with it. The project involves using lego to create a vehicle that can go as far as possible using an elastic band and/or design a wacky car, etc.

THE SET CONTAINS… • 78 LEGO elements as listed here: BRICKLINK • Printed building instructions for models used in the lessons, plus additional building inspiration • 1 unit of 7 x 45-minute lessons 1 each for lower and upper primary grades, plus maths and language arts extensions for additional learning • Informative briefing materials in each lesson plan to support teachers with varying experience levels, even those with limited programming knowledge will be able to deliver the lessons with confidence. There are enough wheels to make One * 4-wheel drive vehicle in each set
  7. 7. MORE DETAILS • STUDENTS IN YEAR GROUPS WILL BE COMBINED. SO, FOR EXAMPLE, MY 4L CLASS WILL WORK TOGETHER WITH 4G AND SO ON, FOR EACH RESPECTIVE YEAR… • BECAUSE CLASSES ARE BEING COMBINED, PLEASE CHOOSE THE BIGGER CLASSROOM – SO FOR EXAMPLE, MY 4L CLASSROOM IS BIGGER THAN 4G. SO, I WILL HAVE 4G AND 4L TOGETHER IN MY ROOM… • THIS MEANS ONE TEACHER CAN TEACH AND THE OTHER IS FREE TO RECORD VIDEO… • EACH YEAR GROUP (YEARS 1 TO 5) IS GIVEN ONE LEGO SET AND ONE LARGE RUBBER-BAND. (KEEP ANOTHER HIDDEN JUST IN CASE THE FIRST BREAKS)
  8. 8. POINTS FOR TEACHERS… • IF YOU HAVE A SMART-PHONE OR A VIDEO RECORDING DEVICE – PLEASE HAVE IT READY TO RECORD THE EVENTS THAT TAKE PLACE. THE VIDEOS CAN LATER THEN BE EDITED, COMBINED IF NEED BE AND USED AS THE SCHOOL SEES FIT. YOU COULD ALSO SEND THE VIDEO TO PARENTS… • SO, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ONE RECORDING DEVICE PER YEAR GROUP… • CLASSES ARE BEING COMBINED... SO, ONE TEACHER CAN TEACH AND THE OTHER CAN RECORD. PLEASE ALLOCATE YOUR ROLES (TEACHER OR VIDEO RECORDER) • YOU KNOW WHICH STUDENTS NEED THE MOST HELP. PLEASE CONSIDER TEAMING THE STRONG STUDENTS WITH WEAKER ONES. YOU COULD HAVE TWO GROUPS WORKING ON DIFFERENT DESIGNS • PLEASE CONSIDER TELLING THE STUDENTS THAT THE BEST INVENTION WILL WIN AN AWARD (FOR EXAMPLE: GIVE SWEETS. YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE THEM!). THIS WILL HELP TO MOTIVATE THEM… • MAKE SURE THE STUDENTS GET THE RUBBER BAND AT THE END – SO IT DOESN’T BREAK. • PLEASE ORGANIZE THE GROUPS IN THE BEST WAY – BASED ON YOUR EXPERIENCE.

POINTS FOR THE OLDER KIDS TO CONSIDER… • HOW DO THEY MAKE THE CAR GO IN A STRAIGHT LINE? • HOW DO THEY MAKE SURE THE CAR DOES NOT TOPPLE OVER? • HOW DO THEY MAXIMIZE THE POWER GENERATED FROM THE RUBBER-BAND? • WHAT DESIGN WORKS BEST FOR THE ABOVE POINTS? (IN OTHER WORDS, GET THEM TO PLAN IT FIRST AND DISCUSS THE DESIGN AS A TEAM BEFORE IMPLEMENTING IT) • HOW CAN YOU MAKE THE CAR FUN? (FOR EXAMPLE: CREATE A BATMAN CAR)
