Objectives:
Students will be able to build their Lego robots and distinguish between the parts/pieces in the trays.

Outline:
*Lego kits will be distributed to the students in my class
*Students will then start sorting the pieces into trays. There are two trays with many compartments that need to have pieces put in the correct place.

Student activitiies:
*Students work together in groups of 3 to set up the kits for later building of the robots.

Teaching/Learning strategies:
*Give each group a kit.
*Show students the laminated pictures of where each item goes in the tray.
*Have students set up trays so that we will be ready for next activity of building the robot.

Resources:
Lego Mindstorm NXT and Ev3 kits
Comments
I have 7 Lego robots but that is only enough for half of my class. I will need 6 more in order to have enough for everyone in my room.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
These lego robots can be used in Math and Science classes to teach/reinforce math and science concepts.
Follow-Up
After this lesson, students will start building (putting the lego pieces together) their robots.
