Lego WeDo 2.0 Unit

Lego WeDo Unit!

After hundreds of hours of work, extensive testing in elementary classrooms, and several rewrites, we are pleased to offer you the use of our Lego WeDo 2.0 Mission to Mars unit. Following the storyline of a mission to the Red Planet, students are confronted by a series of problems they must solve by building and coding Lego models. Fully NGSS compatible, this is a perfect unit to use in third or fourth grade. Please take a look and try out this free resource!
