Duplo Projects at Pea Ridge
March MM Linda Hamilton
For four Wednesdays in March MM students at Pea Ridge Elementary
school in Huntington, WV, had after school projects.
Linda Hamilton worked with 1st graders. They use LEGO Dacta
materials to learn math/ science concepts and do problem solving.
The last week the 4-5th
graders worked together with this group to
put on a play.
A tree has fallen in front of
the bus taking students back to school from a field trip.
How can the students get back
First students learned about gears and used instructions
to build models.
Then students were presented with the story problem that they worked
out on their own.
Perhaps phones could be used to get help. A helicopter
with a hook was an idea.
A bus and tree was made. Rescue people and trucks were made.
Students came up with ideas, planned their projects, and worked
together to make their models.
