Marquee reads: Don't #LEGO Your Dreams

One of the most powerful experiences I've had with my students was during our black history lego mural unit. Second graders were tasked with collaboratively building a mural after having watched a brainpop biography of their life and accomplishments. I remember my students taking interest, asking thoughtful questions, and becoming emotionally invested in the murals because they admired the people depicted. This unit bridged art, non-fiction, culture, history, portraiture, collaboration and legos. I wrote a few grants to purchase all the legos for these projects and packaged up my designs for others to use.
