This activity was inspired by Mrs. Rojas. To put a twist on it, I had kids invent something and build it out of Legos. This gets kids to really think out of the box.
Give students 100 Legos. Then, have them construct a unique invention. It could be a gadget that magically cleans their room with the press of a button. Or maybe, a machine that shoots out ice cream sundaes! Let their creativity run wild! After they construct their creation, take a picture of it. Then, have kids write about what they built. What does their Lego invention do?
