ACTIVITY GUIDEprepared byMary Kate DomanJust like underlyingSTEAM principles,LEGO bricks are allabout building,creating, exploring,and expanding theimagination.LEGO bricks and STEAM Activities to InspireChildren to Become Makers and Doers.One Brick at a TimeLet kids experiment with LEGO bricks, and STEAM learning will follow. LEGO bricks equip kidswith the necessary STEAM skills and knowledge to become innovative and imaginative thinkers.These LEGO activities help bring abstract STEAM concepts to life by putting them into the handsof your students.Alongside 365 Things to Do with LEGO Bricks and The LEGO Ideas Book, use the activities in thisguide to incorporate key aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematicsinto your existing curriculum. Together, they will further help your students invent, create, design,and learn with LEGO bricks.LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks and/or copyrights of the LEGO Group.

365 Things to Do with LEGO BricksSTEAM Extension ActivitiesThe introduction to 365 Things to Do with LEGO Bricks gives you some verygood building techniques, vocabulary, and creative inspiration. Havechildren familiarize themselves with this important LEGO buildinginformation before attempting these activities.The activity selector and timer in the book is a great resource. By racing tofinish or timing how long it takes to build a project, kids reinforce keySTEAM skills such as timing, estimating, problem solving, critical thinking,and creativity.Make a Seesaw for MinifiguresProject #19After kids make their seesaws like the one on page 79, explore how levers, likeseesaws, work by experimenting with their LEGO creations. Before you startexperimenting, have kids create five LEGO minifigures. Instruct them to build two thatare exactly the same, and the other three with different amounts of clothing andaccessories. The point is to have two identical minifigures and three of varying weights.After the minifigures are assembled, invite kids to put the two equal-weighing minifigures onthe seesaw to demonstrate how a seesaw works. Then, have them place minifigures that weigh different amounts onthe seesaw and note what happens.Ask the following questions:After construction: What happens when you put twoequal-weighing minifigures on theseesaw?Ask kids to think about a realseesaw—how it works andmoves. You may even choose toshow them an online video of kidson a seesaw, and then have themwrite a paragraph from thefollowing prompt: I think that thereal seesaw will (or will not) yieldthe same results as the LEGOseesaw experiments because . . . What happens if you put oneminifigure with fewer accessories andone minifigure with more accessorieson the seesaw? What type of simple machineis a seesaw?Answer: It’s a lever. Where is the seesaw’s fulcrum?Answer: It’s the LEGO Technic pinwith ball connector. How can a lighter minifigure raise theside of the seesaw with a heavierminifigure?Answer: Move the lighter minifigurecloser to the fulcrum.LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks and/or copyrights of the LEGO Group.

Point out that this is asimple machine and reinforce how the handles, gears, and the force of pushing andpulling the marker all work together to create art.After kids have built their own amazing drawing machines and completed the extrachallenges found on pages 146–147, have them try out these activities with their machines: Write all the letters of the alphabet. Draw a LEGO structure you’ve built before. Write your name in print and cursive. Draw an equilateral triangle. Draw a perfect circle. Create an intricate pattern—and then duplicate it. Write a paragraph on why you love LEGO bricks.Remember to use the timer to make theseactivities even more challenging!After construction:Have students design a machine that doestheir homework for them. Ask them todraw and label each part, name themachine, and then create a brochurehighlighting its features and why peopleshould buy it.THE DRAWING MACHINEACTIVITY REINFORCES THEFOLLOWING CONCEPTS:CREATIVEWRITINGENGINEERINGLEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks and/or copyrights of the LEGO Group.

365 Things to Do with LEGO BricksSTEAM Extension ActivitiesProject #230Build a Ski SlopeAfter kids have successfully built their ski slopes, they cando some cool experiments with them. Before you begin,askstudents to remove any obstacles on their slopes suchas trees, jumps, and tracks. They will need a smooth ski slope for experimenting.Materials: Completed LEGO Ski Slope from page 167 LEGO minifigures and vehicles (kids build thesethemselves beforehand) Items to use as markers, such ascoins or buttons LEGO brick activity selector and timer Paper and pencil for recording results RulerDirections:First, ask students to look closely at their LEGOminifigures and vehicles. Ask them the followingquestions and have them record what theyhypothesize will happen when they roll the LEGOvehicles and minifigures down the ski slope: Which vehicle will roll the fastest? Why? Which vehicle will roll the farthest? Why? Are there any vehicles that will not roll? Why? Place a LEGO tree at the end of the slope—howcould you make the tree move? If you put a LEGO minifigure on a vehicle, will thatvehicle go faster or slower than when the minifigureis not on it? Why? If you put a LEGO minifigure on a vehicle, will thatvehicle travel longer than when the minifigure is noton it? Why?Have kids test their predictions by rolling the vehicles down the skislope. Then, give them time to explore what happens when theychange the height of the ski slope by making it higher and lower.Expand this challenge by asking them to predict the distance eachcar will go by placing a marker where they think each LEGO vehiclewill stop. Have them measure, record, and compare their guesses tothe actual outcomes.Next, have them place markers at varying distances on the ramp tosee if they can get a LEGO vehicle to stop at the predetermined spotby making the ski slope higher or lower. Repeat this all again withLEGO minifigures on the vehicles.After Construction:Have students examine their hypotheses and experimentoutcomes, measure and graph their results, and thenwrite a scientific conclusionabout their findings.In many traditional learning activities, there is one set answer and oneway to get there. LEGO bricks, minifigures, and vehicles provide childrenan opportunity to solve something that isn’t prescribed and gives thema chance to experiment with trial and error.STEAMFACTShow your kids a LEGO design and ask them to come up with a wayto make it. They will see that they all arrive at the solution from variousapproaches. Encourage them by telling them to remember that there isno wrong answer here!LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks and/or copyrights of the LEGO Group.

The LEGO Ideas BookSTEAM Extension ActivitiesBoth the LEGO Family House (page 44) and Bigger Bridges (page 66)instructions in The LEGO Ideas Book give young builders plenty of tipsand tricks on how to plan and build well-thought-out structures. Beforeconstructing a LEGO family house or bridge, have kids create aLEGO blueprint as a visual representation of how they will execute theirideas.Materials:Directions: LEGO bricks (multiple sizes)Ask kids to create their blueprints by dipping the tops (forcircles) and bottoms (for squares) of the LEGO bricks intowhite paint, and then stamping them on the blueconstruction paper. Blue construction paper White paintLEGO FamilyHouse BlueprintsLEGO BridgeBlueprintsBefore starting, brainstorm thefollowing questions together:Before starting, brainstorm thefollowing questions together: How many bricks high do you want to buildyour family house? How can you make sure your bridge is strong enoughto hold a lot of weight? How many bricks wide do you want to buildyour family house? How does the span of your bridge relate to its height? Where do you want special features likewindows, doors, and balconies to be located? Where can you incorporate unique design elements inyour bridge? What can you add to your family house tomake it unique? What makes your bridgeboth functional andspecial?After construction:After construction:Have students write a story about the family livinginside the house.Hold a contest to name thebridge. Ask each child tocome up with a name forthe bridge and write aparagraph explaining thesignificance behind it. Haveeach child read his or herwork aloud, and vote on themost deserving bridgename.TIP!Add complexity to this activity byhaving kids use exact measurementsand proportions in their blueprintsand building.THESE BLUEPRINTACTIVITIESREINFORCE THEFOLLOWINGCONCEPTS:CREATIVE RCENTAGESPHYSICSPROBLEM SOLVINGPROPORTIONSRATIOSLEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks and/or copyrights of the LEGO Group.
