I like introducing algorithms with Lego. I normally have groups of 4 students with two instructing and two building. The instructors have to verbally explain the algorithm without showing them the pictures or pointing to the pieces. During our reflection we discuss the language and what skills they used during the activity. #cserApps1 #lego #algorithm

- Stephen Robey: I love this activity. It is such a good introduction on algorithms and learning the importance of having to give clear instructions to complete a task.
- Roger Barns: I’ve done this as a student and with my class. So much fun and really helps students understand how to (and not to) give instructions.
