Take a bit of LEGO, add some incredible architecture, throw in a touch of history and boys will enjoy learning about landmarks and making some of their own.

Homeschool Unit Study: LEGO Landmarks

There are so many wonderful landmarks to study and I think a super way to start is to take a look at these resources. Many boys are really into LEGO and enjoy seeing pretty much anything built out of them.

Mix LEGO and learning and you usually have a winning combination.

Brick City LEGO Landmark Building Book

Let’s get started with Brick City. If you want the best overall source for LEGO Landmarks, Brick City is the book for you.

This book is great and is simply filled with LEGO landmarks from all over the world!

Check out our review of the book and the interview with author Warren Elsmore for additional information.

LEGO Landmark Resources

HomeGrown Learners has a great post on LEGO landmarks.  It is always fun for boys to see what other boys are up to with their LEGO.  Her son made some really neat creations.

BrickWorm has a Pinterest board with a bunch of awesome LEGO landmark creations.

LEGOParadise has a Mini Buildings of the World series on his YouTube Channel.  My son has watched a lot of LEGOParadise videos.  Liam does a great job of making some mini creations and giving detailed step-by-step directions for how to make some neat builds.

The video below shows you how to make a mini LEGO Taj Mahal.

LEGO Landmark Sets

LEGO has put out a whole series of building sets based on landmarks called LEGO Architecture. You can find sets such as The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Big Ben, The Eiffel Tower and more.  FYI, these are selling out and becoming somewhat collectible so if they put out a set that you like you might want to get it right away.

More LEGO Landmark Resources

Web Urbanist is an online site about architecture, art and design.  They have a nice article with pictures of historic moments, landmarks and even a few LEGO creations of architecture from Frank Lloyd Wright.

There is also a collection of landmarks on FlickrHiveMind.  Hover over the pictures for the name of the landmark.  There are some really complex and detailed builds on this site.

MocPages is a place to share your LEGO creations.  (MOC stands for “My Own Creation”) You and your boy might want to check this out together.  I am linking directly to the LEGO Landmark section.

The site has a huge amount of very cool brick sculptures and creations. MocPages is a fan created site and not sponsored by LEGO.  I have not seen anything inappropriate on it but you should check it out yourself.

Somewhere in that section (it keeps moving around) is an old picture of Sean Kenney.  He is the one who started MOCPages.  You can find our interview with Sean and review of his books by clicking through the links.

If you have more LEGO Landmarks to add please leave me a comment and I will take a look at them.  Know a mom with boys who would enjoy this post?  Feel free to use the sharing buttons–thanks!
