Homeschoolers are amazingly creative people. We are out of the box thinkers, and work to figure out how to best teach to each of our children. I’ve discovered my kids’ interest level in a lesson instantly gets a lot higher if I pull LEGO bricks into our homeschool.

Right now, I’m betting you’re asking, ‘How can I use LEGO products in my homeschool?”

Homeschooling Using LEGO Bricks

Act out your homeschool lesson with LEGO

You probably already have a giant pile of LEGO bricks in your house. Why not use them to act out scenes from a favorite book (instead of writing that book report)? Or do as we do in our homeschool—act out important events from history.

The figures and what you build do not have to be related to the topic of study. Having the wrong figures can be rather funny. My kids especially love to bring Chima figures into our LEGO history lessons.

Want to see acting out homeschool lessons with LEGO in action? Here you go:

Build examples of the lesson with LEGO Pieces

This is slightly different from the above example. In the above example the kids are acting out what they learned and retelling it. This time they are trying to replicate something built before. This is great for geography and math.

While those are all geography ideas, you can also illustrate math concepts brilliantly with LEGO pieces.

Try some LEGO science experiments

I’ve been amazed how many science concepts can be tried or taught with LEGO pieces in addition to the models you can build like I mentioned up above.
