Children have all sorts of theories about how the world works. What they don’t always have is the ability and tools to help them express their thoughts or feelings, or the opportunity to be able to reflect on the world around them.
BuildToExpress allows and encourages students to express and reflect their thoughts and feelings on any topic by building symbolic models with LEGO® bricks. The LEGO® bricks in each set have been carefully selected to provide a broad spectrum of ‘ready-made metaphors’ which inspires students and stimulates their creative thinking and imagination in a ‘build
and share’ context. For example, a class may be discussing environmental protection, and students will build individual representations of what they believe are the most important considerations. They may use the concept to discuss a novel, to prepare for a design challenge or to debate democracy.
