LEAP4Kidz classes are an integrated learning program offering introduction to a variety of topics using Lego bricks as a learning tool to foster thought and creativity. The class is online, with all lessons, build instruction, challenges and offline learning provided through www.leap4kidz.org portal. Campers will receive a BrickBox of legos that can be reused to make each model and kept at the end of camp. The online curriculum is structured in 3 parts: Lesson of the day discussion; Project model building from a provided planogram; Challenge and creative play with the model.
Lego’s are used for demonstrative and learning purposes. The goal isn’t to create a complex model or follows a series of directions, but to think about the learning topic for the day using a hand-on project. The complexity of the building varies from model to model as is necessary to demonstrate the larger topic of discussion. The goal of each lesson is to get kids thinking about “how they would do it”. The education is in the process. Children will be challenged to problem solve, create, and find solutions themselves. Each child will have a different learning style and level of skill in problem solving.
