Children create models of wild and domesticated animals and their environment. For example, in the activity " Let's Go to the Zoo," children create zoo enclosures with environments for monkeys, elephants, polar bears and other animals. The zoo song they learn as a class, helps them identify and remember the animals as they build and play.
Children build models of input-output devices and explore directions and related concepts. In the "Maze Madness" activity, for example, children explore cause and effect and simple positional language.
Children create models of wild well-known or fantasy characters and act out stories, songs or plays. In the "Puppet Party" activity, for example, children create puppets to help them develop storytelling skills and the ability to imitate the real world.
Children build models illustrating concepts of their identity as a child living in a family and a community. For example, children create a model of themselves in the activity " Nobody Like Me." Using their models, they can share something about themselves with others and they can also learn to listen and appreciate what others share.
Children use the Tech Machines Set along with LEGO® DUPLO® bricks to create transportation - and construction-related vehicles and equipment. Science and mathematics concepts are the focus in these activities. For example, children learn about pulling and lifting forces by building machines that includes the crane hook element in the "Hooks and Beams" activity. In the "Passenger Plan" activity, children estimate the size required and then design and build an airplane for 6 LEGO® DUPLO® figures.
Children play games and experiment with taking turns, following rules, sharing and co-operating. In the "Behind the Wall" activity, for example, children explore visual discrimination, features, colors and shapes along with descriptive language.
Children create models of well known features of community life, thereby exploring their environment, traffic rules, transportation and how people help each other. In the "Eating Out" activity, for
Children learn mathematics concepts. For example, in the activity "Goldilocks and the Three Sizes," children build models to demonstrate and understand about relative size using LEGO® bricks for the small chair, DUPLO® bricks for the medium chair and the LEGO® Soft bricks for the large chair.
Children learn concepts related to the geography of Earth and the solar system. For example, in the “Explorers on Land” activity, children create a vehicle appropriate for different types of geographic areas: polar ice caps, mountainous areas, jungle and desert. Driving the model on a terrain, they learn to recognize features of those kinds of regions.
Children create models of familiar household mechanisms to understand how they are put together. For example, in the “Washing Machine” activity they build a washing machine to show how the drum inside moves.
Children build models of different types of structures and identify basic aspects of stability. In the “ Fishing Rod” activity, for example. Children create models of fishing gear. Using the models, they can explore concepts of stable and unstable structures, simple pulley mechanisms and have fun with workable models from real life.
Children build models showing the amazing “machinery” that humans and animals have inside our bodies. For example, in the “Muscles” activity children create a model of a leg with a muscle attached. Using the model they can demonstrate how moving the muscle adjusts the position of the leg.
