There has been a big gap in this blog for a good reason…I am in the process of planning and building a Maker Space in my school. It is in the early stages, but I thought I would dive into a maker project of my own – a lego wall from scratch.
I must say that I am not the first to design and build a wall for lego exploration. After searching on Pintrest, I stubbled on a blog by Diana Rendina, (Renovated Learning at https://dianarendina.wordpress.com/). She posted about building her epic wall, and it inspired me to try creating one.
The only big change is that I used a mobile wall to build on, as one of our goals in the L.L.C. (Library Learning Commons) is to have everything on wheels (or light enough to move easily).
Here is the adventure in pictures:
Step 1 – Find the materials!
Step 2: Getting started
Step 3: Waiting
Step 4: Time to Play
I am excited to see where the wall will take us. The kids have already found new and interesting ways to build with lego on the wall, and they have even made curriculum connections I could not even imagine. This is going to be interesting.
