Back to Back Construction was developed by Mr. Robert Steinline, a Technology Education teacher at Springfield Middle School, as part of a collaboration project between the Toledo Museum of Art and area educators. The activity develops the ability to technically describe an assembly of geometric shapes and it is intended for 6th–8th-grade students.
By the end of this lesson the student/s will be able to:
– Develop the ability to technically describe an assembly of geometric shapes created with Legos to a degree of accuracy that another learner can replicate the assembly.
– Describe (orally) assemblies to another student to the degree that the second student can re-construct the assembly from a verbal description only.
