We, at ScooNews, are eager to bring to you the most trending and helpful tips for our collective peace of mind during this time of lockdown.
We think Lego is a valuable resource for a whole range of learning activities like spelling, math, science, social studies, art, etc. Moreover, educational activities related to it do not come across as a study time to kids and are more fun and exciting for them.
Parents and teachers, who're in constant touch with their pupils, are suggested to consider these tips for kids of all ages and understanding levels:
This fun game is perfect for playing in pairs and is fabulous for developing oral language communication skills. With each player sitting on opposite sides of a table, set up a barrier in the middle of the table so that players cannot see each other’s work. Player 1 builds something using their own collection of bricks, then player 1 needs to give player 2 a series of verbal instructions, one at a time, so that player 2 can re-create the same construction.
Build 2 or 3 custom minifigs and a building or landscape setting, and use this as inspiration for writing a story. This could even be a multiple part drama that is added to over a series of days as your child plays with their figurines and sets.
Challenge your child to build each of the numerals 0-9 using Lego bricks. It’s not as easy as it sounds!
Lego is a great hands-on counting tool to use for completing addition and subtraction problems in the early grades.
Add a ruler and set a measurement guided building construction challenge, for example, build a tower that is exactly 10 inches high.
Print with Lego or Duplo bricks to create interesting pictures and patterns paint. You could use a stamp pad or squeeze some acrylic paint.
For parents, considering what your child is learning in science, social studies, etc., ask them to build a model that teaches you something based on their knowledge.
These are only a few tips and tricks from us. Lego, however, has vast potential when it comes to educating kids. The more you experiment, the more you’ll get ideas. Why not write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you come across any?
