Legos and Chemistry Classes

Mr. Shoaf's chemistry class used their hands and minds to learn how chemicals synthesize and react.  Using the Legos allowed all types of learners to understand negative and positive numbers.  Mr. Shoaf monitored the activity by placing hints on the bottom of each cup of Legos and by using guiding questions when students stumbled during the collaborative activity.  The colors of the Legos were also key in allowing students to understand how the reactions relate directly to their names.
