Do you have Lego fans in your house? We REALLY do. I have a few blogging friends who have written a book called the Unofficial Guide to Learning with Lego (100+ Inspiring Ideas) by . We created their idea for a Lego Tessellation Puzzle. My kids have been having fun playing with these puzzles for hours and hours!
The Unofficial Guide to Learning with LEGO has tons of educational ideas for various levels and subject areas. There are some ideas for early education teaching colors and counting, all the way up to engineering and other STEM topics. I love that they covered such a wide variety of ideas, because it works great for a family with older kids and younger kids who love Legos. We have a few Lego books in our house already, and am thrilled to add this one to our library as well.
Now, let me tell you about some of our favorite activities from the book!
Lego Tessellation Puzzles
All of the kids helped build and they are all enjoying making different symmetrical patterns with them. We made two of each color of puzzle piece so we could make lots of different things. It was a great lesson for my younger kids on symmetry. This was a new word for them!
100+ Lego Learning Ideas!!
Some of the other ideas we are looking forward to trying out are the Number Line Game, the Puzzle Mat, Tetris, and the wind-powered car. Those are just a few of the exciting ideas included in the book. There are over 200 pages of Lego fun!
I highly recommend grabbing a copy of this through Amazon.
