LEGO® Education BricQ Motion Essential introduces a stellar kit based on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) learning for elementary school graders. Imagine having to teach children about important concepts of physics via boring presentations and textbook definitions. Rather wouldn’t it be more meaningful to relate concepts of physics through fun activities that the child can practice on a daily basis.
If you observe children, they are naturally curious. They ask the right questions and seek answers to their observations. When they throw a ball in the air, they wonder why it comes down right back at them and when they bounce it, they ponder what makes the ball rebound in action. While playing with toy cars they accidently figure when one car hits the other, it sets the wheels in motion.
LEGO® Education BricQ Motion Essential
Lego® Education goes by the example of ‘learn while playing’ and therefore they device educational kits that depict play sets, but contribute in a large way to learning. The latest, BricQ Motion Essential kit provides an easy hands-on learning experiences without the need for technology. Children will surely be amused and have many “aha” moments to cherish while assembling the bricks in motion. Schools in the UAE including Dubai, have recommend to avail a set or two for children to practice hands-on techniques while discovering motion, and force, in an unconventional fun-like setting.
What’s in the Box?
There are precisely 523 pieces that are put together in the compact BricQ Motion box which includes four minifigures and a variety of easy-build elements, like gears, weighted bricks, springs, and more for an authentic constructing experience. Even the trays that come along with the box are color coordinated to make it easy to sort the pieces, so that children don’t end up wasting time in finding the correct parts, but instead focus getting the build correct in the first attempt.
Don’t worry if your little one is apprehensive about trying out LEGO® bricks for the very first time. The kit comes with an illustrated instruction booklet to guide the child through the entire process from scratch through simple step-by-step pictures and explanations. Isn’t this an exciting way to discover physical science in action!
Supporting Teaching-Learning Experience
Aligned with the basics of STEAM approach, this kit fuses the learnings of 2 curriculum units under its Train to Win (Grades K-2) and Winning with Science (Grades 3-5) programs. Educators and parents can blindfolded rely on the teacher training videos, systematic lesson plans, engaging videos, and printable worksheets to deliver the training without having to device a teaching plan for the same. This fully loaded BricQ Motion Kit is easily available in the Middle East, including GCC countries and will be delivered in the shortest span, so that students can get started without further ado and match-up with the level of learning amongst graders their age globally.
Here’s what you can expect in the curriculum unit:
- 7-8 lessons of 45 minutes each (1 open-ended project with two 45-minute sessions)
- 30+ minutes language arts and math extensions for each lesson
- 6-10 hours of educational content
There’s also a Personal Learning kit available with 62 elements to hand-over the box to each student. This enables the teacher to create a hybrid learning environment while delivering the STEAM curricula to a child who is learning remotely from home.
Many parents and educators vouch by LEGO® Education BricQ Motion Essential and have observed the enthusiasm by which children come forth and construct innovative models while easily grasping important lessons on physics. Is your kid a BricQ champ already?
