A wonderful admiration is a step towards a future dream

Ukraine, Zalishchyky State Gimnasia, Natalia Grushko

It is obvious that children love to play games, but how to make these games useful for education? Here is how we solved this problem with LEGO and Rubik’s Cube competitions. For starters, it’s no secret that learning something new helps promote a healthy and happy brain. Each time you learn a new skill you are rewiring the parts of your brain by connecting neurons. The Rubik’s Cube has been around for decades and has always been considered as a fun game, but it also is a great activity to train your brain. This is why the idea of making a competition between first graders has been made. All of the students brought their Rubik’s Cubes and learned how to solve this interesting puzzle all together with teacher’s help. The Lego Education brand has been working with educators for over three decades to develop experiences in the classroom that bring learning concepts to life. Lego is just a toy to some people and the educational benefits of playing with the colourful, multi-faceted bricks aren’t always clear. We have identified eight key benefits of creating, configuring and crafting with Lego. This is why it was interesting to work at school with LEGO. A fun game and a great way to train students’ brain. The first graders had a great time.
