Three Little Legos

Structured block play is what happens when a child tries to recreate a construction by consulting a model or blueprint.

It’s more constrained, but it calls on a particular skill set that is crucial for many tasks.

Kids must analyze what they see, perceive the parts that make up the whole, and figure out how the parts relate to each other.

For this activity, students were shown pictures of the straw house and brick house in the Three Little Pigs.

They were then asked to recreate these houses with Legos. Some students were given yellow Legos to represent the straw house, while others were given red Legos to represent the brick house.

Everyone enjoyed recreating the structures they saw in the story!
