Get inspired to use play based learning with Six Bricks.
Six Bricks is one of the LEGO Foundation's tools to introduce learning through play into different settings. Through fun and short activities with sets of LEGO® DUPLO® bricks in six bright colours, children can practice different skills.
What skills do children practice?
When they are engaged and challenged in playful ways, children practice skills for learning:
- Language such as describing in rich detail, giving clear instructions, explaining your reasons, and telling stories, which helps you to communicate with others and express your ideas.
- Problem solving including to stay focused, and remember a task or a challenge, set goals and make plans, come up with creative ideas, and reflect on what you do and how you do it.
- Collaboration as in working together in pairs or teams, share turns and the materials you work with, learn from your peers and their ideas, and give each other roles and responsibilities.
