organizing your lego collection
Organizing your LEGO collection
  • Kits
    • More accountability for students
    • Everyone has same access to pieces
    • Intensive Sorting
  • Bins
    • Easier to sort
    • Students have access to all pieces
    • Can run out of limited pieces
  • Mini-Kits
    • Essential/limited pieces, everything else in bins
student groups
Student Groups
  • Ideal - 2 students : 1 kit : 1 computer
  • Realistic Solutions
    • Give students roles - programmer, builder, designer, spokesman - rotate roles
    • Design Contracts - I build this part, you build this part
    • Timers - 5 minutes on computer, then switch
a note on gender
A Note on Gender
  • In general, same sex pairs work better
    • Girls tend to plan before building
    • Boys tend to grab pieces and start building without a plan
  • Types of activities
    • Variety - not all cars or animals
    • Consider competition carefully
