LEGO® Education WeDo Extension Activity Packs serve as an addition to the original WeDo Activity Pack to aid elementary school educators in creating more engaging learning experiences in science, literacy, math, and social studies. Using the LEGO Education WeDo hardware and software in combination with these activities, educators can easily create rich, cross-curricular lessons to inspire critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. These activity packs provide detailed lesson plans, resources, and extension activities delivered in a printed teacher’s guide. A CD-ROM including printable versions of all the lessons is also included. These activity packs are designed for use with the WeDo Construction Set, Software, and Activity Pack and include optional extension activities using the Sceneries Set (779385).
Each activity pack includes 12 activities that relate to the different LEGO Education WeDo themes: Amazing Mechanisms, Play Soccer, Wild Animals, and Adventure Stories. Every activity covers approximately three hours of classroom time, and each theme includes a Learning Grid mapping activities to key standards and learning objectives.
All of the 12 activities include a Lesson-At-A-Glance overview, a Teacher’s Guide with a detailed lesson plan, worksheet(s), a rubric for evaluation, and programming and building guidance. You will also receive tracking sheets for organization and program planning.
- Included are mathematics, literacy, science, and social studies activities for each model. Additional standards covering visual arts, dramatic arts, music, physical education, and technology are also sprinkled in throughout the lessons.
- Each activity pack contains 36 hours of classroom time across 12 activities.
This package includes all four of the printed themed LEGO Education WeDo Extension Activity Packs and CD-ROMs, totaling more than 144 hours of instruction. Also included is an interactive, downloadable CD-ROM that contains helpful hints and WeDo programming videos.
