Bricks 4 KidzĀ® program combines science and Legos at KCH



April 6, 2018 -- Students at K.C. Heffernan Elementary School this week embarked on an “in-school field trip” with Bricks 4 Kidz® that included hands-on lessons with Lego bricks that correlated to cross-disciplinary curriculum objectives. In the photos below, third-grader participate in a building exercise that integrated force and motion concepts, which are part of the third-grade science standards.

The Bricks 4 Kidz® approach to learning is imaginative, multi-sensory and fun, creating a dynamic learning experience for students, according to the program’s website. Bricks 4 Kidz models are the centerpiece of the lesson, which includes an educator-scripted discussion designed to engage students in a discovery process.

Students in grades 2 and 4 also participated on different days.
