This resource by Hannah, Peter and Jess looks at what can be achieved and shows the final product with using Lego wedo.
Focus: Using physical Computing to create an object or something and in this case a lion.
Suitable for: Key stage 1 and 2
What you can do: Logo wedo allows children to make a variety of different things such as animals by following on screen instructions. To use with children this would have to be split over a number of lessons. When the children have built what they want they can programme their creation to move and also make a sound, again following the on screen instructions to do so.
Advantages of using Lego wedo:
- Will make computing sessions fun for children especially the boys
- Very easy to use
- Give examples for what the children can make
- Has easy online instructions for the children to follow
- Cross curricular links to design technology as the children are designing something using a focused practical task
The video below shows a final product of what can be made using Lego wedo and shows the potential of what could be achieved.
