Lego Block Center
Preschool, K, 1-2
Debbie Haren, preschool teacher
Subject: homes and community helpers
To build a house or community building, such as a fire station or police station, with Legos.
Many different pieces of legos such as doors, windows,
wheels for cars and many small pieces to build a house.
- Put all legos on a large table for a center time activity.
- Explain to children to think about the homes and buildings in the community that we have talked about. Now you want them to work together to build a community with lego blocks.
- Each member at the table decides what building in the community
they want to build. In addition, they have to work as a team to build a hospital.
- Let the kids be as creative as they want! They can also build streets. If you have street signs they can put them in, too. They could make an area in the middle for a park or school!
This is great for helping kids to learn to work together!
