A Practical Guide to Teaching Children Basic Math Concepts Using LEGO Bricks

LEGO Fractions

Scholastic has created a guide to teaching children basic math concepts with LEGO bricks. The guide includes descriptions and example photographs demonstrating how the bricks can be used to show concepts like fractions, square numbers, and averages, and it also features sample worksheets teachers can use in class.

The guide points out the benefits of using a tool that children are likely already familiar with to teach them new concepts, but also encourages teachers who may not have grown up with LEGO to spend some time playing with them to generate some ideas of their own.
