Lego Story Starters curriculum is specifically designed to support language arts. The goals are to enhance students’ reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. A book is read each week and students have the option to build scenes independently or as a small group, modify the ending or characters, or write their own story.
Lego Simple Machines and Motorized Mechanisms are pre-robotics sets which are perfect for any child that has an interest in science, technology, engineering, math, building and inventing or working with their hands. The problem solving, hands-on activities will help develop students’ understanding of basic physical and applied science and mechanical principals such as gears, pulleys, levers, wheels and axles.
More To Math introduces a new math challenge with each lesson and students are urged to solve the problem using Lego bricks. This curriculum is designed to encourage students to have a positive attitude towards solving math problems.
Learn to Learn Children learn best when they experience things first-hand and within a meaningful context. This new Lego curriculum awakens student’s natural curiosity and challenges them to build something functional or meaningful.
Build To Express (new!) This unique Lego set enables students to build their way to better communication skills. It creates a highly motivational, non-judgmental environment for students to express their thoughts and feelings.
