LEGO EDUCATION

http://education.lego.com/en-us

This site offers lots of resources for teachers, see what is included below:

  • COMPUTER SCIENCE. Programming for real. Intuitive, simple icon-based programming language and tools that encourages solutions design using algorithmic problem solving.
    Example: Define an algorithm to measure and control behaviour and process.
  • SCIENCE.  Learning by doing. Support classroom teaching by using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 to collect real-time data to verify a hypothesis.
    Example: Carry out experiments designed to determine melting points – collect data samples with the temperature sensor and track and plot the results using the intuitive graphing environment.
  • TECHNOLOGY.  Actively engage students. Explore real-life application of technology to make analogies, identify relationships, predict outcome, analyze data and draw conclusions.
    Example: Explore design and functionality by building and programming the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 to carry out controlled actions.
  • ENGINEERING. From idea to working prototype. Engage your students in practical, open-ended engineering challenges and open-ended problem solving.
    Example: Carry out a design process, from brief through testing and analysis to creating functional prototypes that can be easily modified to achieve design goals.
  • MATHEMATICS.  Bringing numbers alive. LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 is an ideal way to explore mathematical problems for real, making abstract concepts tangible and concrete.
    Example: Calculate the wheel circumference of your robot. Then program the robot to move a specific distance using the rotation sensor feedback multiplied by the circumference.

Animals and their Habitats. Our topic for November 2018 was Animals and their Habitats. The study of animals and where they live holds a fascination for us all but especially for children. We have 60 tremendous themed websites on offer; they include resources that are suitable for KS1 and KS2. The resources embrace the subjects of Science and Geography and collectively, they cover:  what different species of animals exist and in what countries they may be found, their habitats, what they eat, how they adapt to their environments, their food chains, minibeasts and much more besides. As usual, the themed resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively underpin this very appealing topic.
