Last night I had a wonderful evening. I had an opportunity to speak to a homeschool group about Learning with LEGO®  While there I shared some resources for finding materials and resources. I promised to share links to these resources on my blog today. Earlier in the week I shared resources for finding challenges for LEGO® club or co-op activities for groups.

I really enjoyed doing research for this seminar and was fascinated by all that I discovered so I am happy to share with all of my readers these great websites and the materials which can be found at each of them. Many of them are free.

It was so fun watching the children and their excitement to be able to participate as part of a team build challenge. I am always amazed at the creative and amazing builds that kids are able to produce in a 10 minute challenge. Especially tonight when there were nearly 100 kids participating in groups of 4-5 all the while I was speaking to the parents about incorporating Math into homeschool education. Kids are great!

BIG thanks goes to LEGO® Education for donating giveaways to share with families at the event. I know each family was thrilled with their Build to Express workshop kits and magazines. 5 children were joyful to receive their LEGO® Posters, and the BIG winner of the LEGO® Education Build to Express Kit was very excited. Another BIG thank you goes to BlokHedz a local retailer for their donation of Brick Forge materials for the kids.
