There are walls at the Lego stores that are filled with individual Lego parts.  You can fill a bucket and pick out exactly what you need.

Use this PowerPoint activity to get your students conferring with each other, making guesses, and explaining their reasoning.  Students try to determine the number of Lego bins on this giant wall.  Students think about arrays and multiplication as they consider a reasonable quantity of Lego bins in this three-act task.

We have a PowerPoint presentation for all to use:  LegoWallActivity.pptx

For members we have a teaching suggestion and solution document.
