Do your kids love Legos?
My kids absolutely love Legos, and they have lot of them. They have made everything from a desktop computer to a double-barrel shot gun out of Legos.
There is nothing they can’t make out of Legos..
When I began homeschooling, one of the things I wanted to do was do fewer worksheets and encourage my kids to use their creativity to learn.
I feel that they learn far more through playing games and creativity than he does by filling in worksheets.
Sure – worksheets are great because they give us lasting, tangible evidence of their comprehension of the material.
But they are not always – even often – the best method for learning.
One of the best ways my son learns is through creating things and one of his most favorite toys is Legos
A couple of years ago, my friend Misty from Year Round Homeschooling sent me a packet of her Lego Winter Task Cards.
My kids loved them!
They asked to do them over and over and over.
And it got me to thinking: I could do these for learning challenges! We could use them for science, history, holidays….
.So, I began to do that.
When we’d read the Bible, I’d ask them to build the story. My son created this Lego Stop Motion movie with one of his creations.
When we’d learn about bones, I’d have them create the bones we’d learned about.
It was amazing how well my kids connected with the material and comprehended what we were learning.
That is why I decided to begin offering these Brick Master Challenge cards on my blog.
For my second set of cards, I thought it could be super fun to do a set of cards for bones and joints because Lego pieces actually have so many options to teach your kids types of joints.
Also, building the various bones (or finding Lego pieces to represent various bones) help them to see, feel and build them, which will help to layer the information they’re learning and make it stick better and longer.
In the months to come, there will be Brick Master Challenge Cards for a lot of subjects like zoology, biology, history, and much, much more!
