Building a Lego Car is a task that allows the student to work independently using a Work System.
Materials you’ll need:
- Lego Racer Set # 8304: Smokin’ Slickster
- Instructions with pictures
Lego Tiny Turbo 8304 Smokin’ Slickster
The student can follow adapted instructions given in picture form available here and in the attachment below.
Work systems allow a student to work independently in the classroom and eventually in work settings.
Tasks for work systems should be directly related to a student’s IEP goals. Work systems include preferred and motivating activities.
Use ‘graduated guidance’ if a student requires support while completing a work system task. Briefly, this means providing enough physical guidance to prevent error; reducing this support as the student gains independence.
