Student created Lego Structure Creativity and Collaboration in the Library

Architecture has been the theme and inspiration in the discovery zone of the library these last couple of weeks!  After learning more about this topic through the library mini-lessons, many students have chosen to try it out for themselves with materials such as  Legos or Magnetix.   Students have worked together to create various structures that are now displayed around the library.   The discovery zone in the library contains a large variety of hands on materials that support students in their creative and flexible thinking.  While some students engaged in creating their own architecture, others explored coding activities and games that provided different problem solving opportunities.
