Challenge good writers with StoryStarter Expansion Packs. The StoryStarter expansion packs are add-on packs to your StoryStarter core product. Three expansion packs are available: Community, Space and Fairy Tale. They consist of a LEGO® brick setand a curriculum pack.
Students can develop their writing abilities further with the expansion packs, going deeper into genres and social studies through a three phase method: Theme, Research and Reporting. It allows students to create and document their stories with different types of writing such as interviews, articles, logbooks, reports and much more.
Every Expansion Set has a corresponding Curriculum Pack that invites students to delve deeper into each theme. The Curriculum Pack features fiction and non-fiction activities with real-world relevance; challenging students to read informational texts related to the different themes and communicate their learning with peers. This process endows students with the powerful skills of conducting research, interpreting findings and documenting stories using a variety of writing styles.
Students are inspired to discover the science fiction genre while also exploring social studies, recounting historical events, or exploring related natural science topics. The set includes 186 unique bricks such as character elements for creating astronauts and aliens; exploratory props such as lasers, antennas, control panels, and detectors; and a variety of setting elements for constructing dynamic outer space scenes. These special elements enable students to engage with space exploration as well as science fiction characteristics, people, and their needs.
