This activity practices direction writing and close reading. It's crazy engaging and involves cooperative learning. A PowerPoint hook features Lego jokes and a Lego video clip. Students then assemble Lego creations and write assembly directions for those creations. The students then trade directions and try to assemble what their peers have written. Want to impress your principal? Invite her in during this lesson, because students will be intently working, writing, reading, and assembling for fifty minutes without a single off task moment!
