Bricks4Kidz: LEGO Laws of Motion

Introduce kids to physics, including the “Laws of Motion” made famous by Sir Isaac Newton in this fun, Lego Engineering unit. By explaining terms like inertia and mass using simple words, Bricks4Kidz lessons give students a foundation for understanding concepts that they will delve 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! Kids will launch paper footballs at targets with the catapult model, give their mini figures a ride on a motorized see saw and swing-o-rama rides, and practice telling time as they build the clock model. Who says physics is boring? Test models that illustrate the concepts of inertia, force, mass, acceleration, and the observation that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.  What will your reaction be to our class? We doubt you’ll stay at rest with these challenging projects designed to accelerate the learning with the force of fun!
