In this class students will have the opportunity to blend creativity with mathematical thinking as we use Legos to explore and model perimeter and area in rectangles and squares.

Class experience

US Grade 4 - 5
At the end of this class students will be able to define perimeter and area and measure each in mathematical units. Students will be able to create rectangles and squares with a given perimeter and/or area and will be able to incorporate them into a creative design of their choosing.
Helping students discover their talents, passions, and strengths is one of the things that brings me the greatest fulfillment in life. Encouraging them to find a way to plug those talents into their learning is a vital part of who I am. As a former Math/Science teacher and FIRST LEGO League Robotics coach, I have spent countless hours helping elementary school aged children discover the wonder of learning with LEGOS. My work as a Gifted and Talented Specialist taught me the importance of inspiring children to look beyond the obvious to the abstract and helped me to see the joy that comes from viewing every child through the lens of his or her strengths. My hope is that, through my teaching, I can help each child to see himself, or herself, through that lens as well.
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Learners will be assessed continuously through observation, questioning, and discussion as we design, create, and share our ideas throughout our time together. Learners will also have an opportunity to use a rubric to reflect on and self assess their own learning.
Grades Offered
In order get the most out of this session, students should bring their own LEGO bricks to class. I recommend the LEGO basic brick  set (11002). I also encourage students to bring a LEGO base plate (11010) to build on. Any color is fine. If students do not have access to LEGO bricks, they can follow along using paper and pencil. (One inch graph paper is best.) LEGO bricks will just make it more fun and interactive.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
