Mrs. Lewis

Students were given a task: Build an object that represents them-with legos! A monster, baseball field, a person, etc. but be creative. The object should have a value as close to 1 million as possible. Students assigned a value to various sizes of lego blocks and then determined the value of their object all while learning about place value! Click below to view a student example!
