Third-grade students at a Tennessee school are using Legos as the basis for projects that integrate reading, math and vocabulary into science lessons. In one lesson, students used Lego Education sets and laptop computers to create spinning tops. "I created an article because there just isn't really an easy way to explain how a top actually spins, so it's a nonfiction text for them to read, and I added the vocabulary from science," teacher Heather Hayes said.
