The Wild Robot is the story of Roz, a robot who is shipwrecked on an island, and the animal creatures she comes to know. This week, we took a break from reading to make Lego landscapes of the different areas of Roz's island. The students were able to make incredibly imaginative and detailed models of Roz's environment using a very limited supply of Legos.
Notice the eyes of the meadow animals peeking out; also a robot part in the center.

The Beach and Cliffs
This is where the robots wash up on shore--notice the robot parts (like the eyeballs) strewn about. The empty spaces around the "rocks" are tide pools.

The Nest & Garden
The Nest is actually a small hut, and it is Roz's home; she lights a fire in the winter to help the other animals keep warm.
