Dryden's art program won an ABC/25 grant for materials for a Lego wall. This year we are using our supplies to collaboratively make radially symmetrical designs on our square base plates. We've found that this is not as easy as it sounds. One misplaced block can throw off everything. So, I structured the lesson into a game that ensures everyone takes turns one piece at a time. The 3/4 cardboard shields keep the eyes focused on the design as you rotate the baseplate for each turn. The kids LOVE this activity and seem to want to play/create endlessly. See our finished Lego designs online here or in the display case at school.
