Farrar Posted September 30, 2012 Share Posted September 30, 2012 The way our small co-op works is that the kids, through consensus and discussion, pick the topics for the year and then the families alternate and teach one class each on the topics. This year, one of our topics for winter is... robots. Um, okay. Except, what in the world will we do? My one bright idea was for us all to go in together on a Lego WeDo set and take turns going through some of the projects. Unfortunately, it was such a good idea that it was taken. One of the kids has already done that with a couple of friends. So that's out. We could still spend money on a set like that. But on what? Or we could do individual projects, but what? I can think of some initial learning we could do, or some creative projects branching off of the theme of robots, or some electronics projects... but it seems like the kids voted on robots, so we should do something actually with robotics. The kids, by the way, are mostly 7 and 8 yo, but there are a couple of younger sibling tag alongs who are 4 yo (almost 5). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
