Recently our 5th grade scholars experienced an in-school field trip using Lego Robotics. Bricks 4 Kidz is a workshop that uses LEGO Bricks to deliver hands-on lessons correlated to cross-disciplinary curriculum objectives. The Bricks 4 Kidz approach to learning is imaginative, multi-sensory and fun, creating a dynamic learning experience for your students.
Bricks 4 Kidz models are the centerpiece of the lesson, which includes an educator-scripted discussion designed to engage students in a discovery process. Their experienced teachers provided everything needed including LEGO Bricks, model plans, and a power-point presentation.
Our workshop theme was cars and motion. Scholars were highly engaged while learning such important topics as laws of motion, and robotics. Scholars were able to make connections between modes of transportation in the past and present, as well as collaborate with their peers to build a moving vehicle. Scholars got to choose what additions to put on their creations and to make observations about the change in speed while adding accessories to their vehicle.
