Lessons by Big Idea — LESSONS by BIG IDEA – This file contains all the lessons for grades (K-5) with a tabbed page for each Big Idea (see bottom tabs to navigate from one Big Idea to another) — useful for remediation of previous grades based on Big Idea. The files for each grade have a different page in the workbook for each different Big Idea. If there is no page for a Big Idea, that Big Idea is not taught at that grade.

Welcome! This website is provided as a resource for STEM teaching – focusing on Inquiry approaches to teaching and learning. The materials provided were produced by classroom teachers (K-8) who have been involved in professional development projects aimed at helping them to develop their Inquiry skills.

The projects shared here were funded by grants from the Virginia Department of Education, through the federal Math – Science Partnership program, and NCLB Title IIB initiative. Central Virginia teachers, from six public school divisions and area private schools, worked in partnership with Education and STEM faculty as they engaged in increasingly student-centered approaches to teaching.

Engineering What Is IT
Pre-LEGO Activities

The resources listed on this page can be helpful in introducing LEGO robotics to the classroom. These materials will be most helpful to teachers that are looking into starting a robotics program in their school as well as teachers that have prior experience with LEGO robotics that want to extend their program. LEGO programs and activities are continually evolving and we encourage collaboration among teachers.

It is important for all persons (teachers, students, administrators, and parents) to be aware that LEGO robotics is more involved that just “playing with toys”. By implementing a robotics program in your school, students will be exposed to STEM fields and content, critical thinking and problem solving, and 21st Century Skills. By using LEGO, students are able to begin their exploration into engineering by using a familiar and safe method for construction. Plus by combining LEGO and robots, students are presented with a natural hook for engagement in the classroom and are able to begin dreaming of future careers and applications.
