Laws of Motion – Introduce kids to physics, including the “Laws of Motion” made famous by Sir Isaac Newton. By explaining terms like inertia and mass using simple words, Bricks 4 Kidz lessons give students a foundation for understanding concepts that they will delvelop deeper into in years to come. For now, they get to build fun stuff out of LEGO ® bricks and create a positive association that science is fun!
Energy is Everywhere – Energy is essential to almost everything we do, from the lights in our homes and classrooms to the gasoline that fuels our cars. Introduce your students to the world of energy in all its amazing forms. This unit explores many sources of energy from wind and solar power to biofuel and fossil fuel. Students will define terms like renewable, landfill, greenhouse effect and generator and build moving models of just some of the awesome ways we power our world.
Space Adventures – Many children dream of being an astronaut and traveling to space, so Bricks 4 Kidz created an entire unit around space! Models include a satellite, a lunar module, a centrifuge which astronauts use to prepare for the physical sensations of launch, a treadmill which astronauts use to stay fit in space, and a “space robot”. During this unit, students will learn some of the science behind launching things into orbit, will hear about the most-distant man-made object in the universe, and discuss what it is like to be an astronaut in space.
