Lego building algorithm

In this activity SEND pupils will learn to create a clear algorithm for someone else to follow. Pupils will create a simple model from Lego and then take photographs to create a visual algorithm to help other pupils to recreate their model. As they remove one block at a time they are learning to decompose a problem into more manageable steps. This lesson can be split into two depending on the needs of the pupil.
