|Lego Build Depicting Jamestown Settlement|
Clearly, the students had to be creative because they had to "think outside the box" to complete this task. Students had to find ways to use available resources to create a model of Jamestown. As I visit schools and see students working with Legos in activities like this, I am always impressed by their creativity. In addition, the teacher had several students share their models with the class. This provided the students with an opportunity to develop their communication skills. Students had to share the aspects of their model and how each component was connected to information they learned about Jamestown. What a great activity! I'm confident that the students in this class will remember important information about Jamestown long after today's lesson.
