Students will read the book of their choosing. They will design and build a vignette using Legos. This small scene will capture the essence, or theme, of the book read. The students must also explain how the scene represents the theme chosen. There is plenty of writing paper to help students describe the theme of the text and various resources for differentiating this activity for any student.
There are two versions of every page, one with a polka dot border and one with no border.
-posters of common themes
-writing paper with evidence statement prompts at the bottom
-mini cards describing each step of the process
-Multiple versions of student pages for easy differentiation every step of the way
-Student directions pages
-Teacher directions pages
-Mini books for reflection or planning purposes for students. Some pages are blank, while others have prompts and questions aligning with the steps in this process.
-mini and whole page rubrics for self-assessment, peer-assessment, or teacher-assessment
In order to complete this project, students must have access to an abundance of Lego pieces. In my classroom, each student has a tub of Legos for STEM/STEAM projects. This project can also be conducted as a culminating project for a class read aloud text.
