Add STEM & Robotics fun to your Halloween celebrations! This activity is perfect as a Machines & Mechanisms extension, where children can apply their knowledge of simple machines, chain reactions, and simple programming.
These cards are perfect to use in a classroom, afterschool clubs, as part of Makerspace area, at Library Clubs, at homeschool setting or with a homeschool group/co-ops, or as a family fun activity. Students can work individually, in pairs or groups.
The file contains:
The cards are intended to use with Lego®, Lego® Technic, Lego® WeDo 1.0 or 2.0 sets to build and program constructions with movable parts. Using motors and sensors will help your children bring life to their creations. However, if you do not have access to Lego® WeDo sets, you can still use these cards by skipping the programming part and concentrating on "machines and mechanisms" application. Challenge your students to come up with exciting solutions! Adding themed Lego® Minifigures and accessories will give the final touch to the creations.
Although it is a Lego® based activity, all other materials from your Makerspace area can be added whenever necessary (e.g., cardstock, craft foam, rubber bands, etc.).
