Lego center – don’t have Lego people but everything else.  Up to 10 people but there are specific “rules” listed at the station – When they leave, everything is taken apart and put back in the bucket.  Rotated every three weeks.

Other ideas: Cardboard creations, K-Cup Creations – making towers, Rainbow Looms – making bracelets (perhaps a fundraising idea), Marble Runs, and Math Manipulative Towers.  Excellent ideas were presented here!

Session 2Mobile Literacy Centers for K-3 – How do you use digital creation to inspire mobile learning?  Creating digital books with Book Creator – The Walk Our World project – http://walkourworld2015.weebly.com/ – Each day, week, or bi-weekly. we ask that teachers use the form to post their classroom “STEPS” taken during that time.   We will post results weekly.  Our goal is to walk at least 87,653,456 steps together — which equals one time around the earth, but we hope to do even more!”

Session 3 – Moonshot Thinking: Student Driven Research Projectshttps://todaysmeet.com/MoonShot – a great resource is the book Moonshots in Education.  Genius Hour Support information is here.  An excellent presentation by Naomi Harm.
