We have come up with a big variety of LEGO learning ideas and will continue to add more over time.
I am a huge fan of hands-on learning and we really, really enjoy LEGO. Adding those two things together provides a wonderful way for boys to learn.
If you want your boys to learn more math, English, history or any other topic for that matter, make sure he is learning in a way that works best for him.
Honestly, including LEGO will be the best thing you ever did. Just by playing around with LEGO the learning expands and because they are using their hands and enjoy building with bricks, the learning sticks.
Incorporating a few games or open-ended play into the mix can be a great idea if they are open to it. Try a few of these LEGO learning ideas on for size.
LEGO Learning Ideas:
To get started, you can read LEGO: What They Learn When They Play so you will have a solid understanding of just how much they can actually learn while playing with LEGO bricks. It is Amazing!
Next up we have a series of LEGO math games. These games are all played with bricks and help kids to learn math. Surprising, but true! LEGO Math Games and the second edition, LEGO Math Games 2 are both packed with fun games that help them learn about math.
