Lego Engineering: WeDo Robotics

Second graders are always excited to explore our Lego Engineering WeDo Robotics science unit each spring. Over the last week, we have built five different robots: dancing birds that tweet, a monkey that drums, a  crocodile that opens and closes its mouth, lion that sits up, eats and roars, a goalie who guards the goal and a kicker that kicks a ball. It has been an exciting experience as we have learned the importance how engineering teams work together to achieve success.

Our learning targets have been:

  • build a robot and program it to move and make sounds
  • work as a team to problem-solve and revise our building plans
  • learn how robots are used to help solve problems

    Dear Mrs. Amri,
    Thank you for letting us do Lego Robotics. The tweety bird actually made me feel like tweeting and spinning around different ways. Did you enjoy the tweety bird? Did you feel like spinning around and tweeting?

      Dear Blake,
      Thanks for your comment. I loved this robotics unit! I, too, felt like tweeting and twirling. It is exciting to see how we can work together in teams to create this designs. You did amazing work!

  2. Hello Mrs. Amri’s Class!
    My Grade 2 class loved this post. We built lego robots on the same day as you! We do many similar things, even though we live in Ontario and you live in Canada. Our class blog is edublog.amdsb.ca/team2eagles and we have student bloggers too!

      Dear Miss Versteeg and Team 2,
      Thank you for your comment on our class blog. That is exciting to know we are both exploring the world of engineering with Lego robots. We will be looking up some information about Ontario, Canada, where you are! We send out a big hello from Oregon!
