At school next week we are having a DT week. Amongst other things the children in my year 3/4 class would like to do some work with Lego (the boys are lego mad-particularly star wars!) We have a few boxes of basic lego, trouble is I'm struggling to think of what to do that will involve some good quality DT learning. Our topic at the moment is space so the rest of the week we are creating moving aliens using pneumatics and cam shafts, designing a space suit for our class teddy-investigating the most appropriate materials and how to join them, making a simple jigsaw and cooking. I thought about perhaps making the strongest lego tower or the most aerodynamic lego car but I'm not sure if they will all turn out very similar when we test them as lego is pretty strong anyway and pretty square whatever they do with it! Has anyone done anything similar with lego? Any ideas will be greatfully appreciated.
