Come See the Lego Museum on Display at the Library!

We’re so proud of Ms. Karen’s builders and engineers. They’ve been hard at work all summer building mazes, superheroes, and even Tooth-Gnasher Superflashes. Take a look at what they came up with!

Our Books and Blocks builders made superheroes out of Lego® blocks after reading Ten Rules of Being a Superhero by Deb Pilutti, built their own versions of Tooth-Gnasher Superflash after reading Daniel Pinkwater’s book of the same name and ended the summer building some amazing trucks after reading Supertruck by Stephen Savage. Books and Blocks is our builder’s club for students entering grades K – 2. They begin by reading a book with a central theme, listening carefully for building ideas. Then, they put their imaginations into high gear to create different kinds of structures. Program challenges are designed to guide students to think about their structures and build within a specified criterion.

Our Lego Engineers in Brilliant Brains and Blocks were challenged to create a simple machine, build a vehicle that could attach to a wire and travel 18 feet and last of all, design a simple or complex maze that could be completed using a bead. What a summer of challenging builds!  Brilliant Brains and Blocks is our builder’s club for students entering grades 3 – 5. Students are given challenges to develop their thinking and problem solving skills by asking them to design, test, and redesign their creations. Challenges involve using our collection of donated blocks to solve problems creatively using science concepts like weight, friction, design, stability, center of gravity, symmetry, and point of impact.
