On March 21st, Edgeley’s Meaningful Out of School Time (MOST) Program took its students to the community library to create a themed Lego display. This project allowed students to brainstorm a theme, plan of action and how they would present it back to the group – a great use of 21st Century Skills and the 4 Cs (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking).
Each student’s project was unique to them and allowed them to show their personality and interests. Of course, they all had a blast working with Legos and their parents loved the ability to get them into the community and be creative with others.
“The children definitely enjoy planning with the Legos and sharing with others what they built while the parents like that they are building and working together with other students while being creative,” says Heidi Mathern, Edgeley MOST program head teacher.
“This has been a great activity to build community relationships at the public library, expose children to what is available to them at the library, and also it is a fun time for all of them to build, share and be proud of their work!”
