R-7 Extended School Year students learn through LEGO activities

August 7, 2013 

Bricks4Kidz owner Ellen Beatty and helpers Alexandra Koronis and Trent Sutton spurred ingenuity among the students in the Lee’s Summit R-7 Extended School Year program by using colorful LEGO bricks.

The LEGO bricks were assembled and connected in many ways to construct dinosaurs, and were taken apart again and again to make things such as vehicles, people and buildings.

The students also used a battery operated LEGO build to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Madison Green declared: “It was pretty awesome and I had lots of fun.”

The ear-to-ear grins on the faces of the other students proved that they were also having a great time, added teacher Kay Rader.

“Just looking at all the fun creations the kids made inspired many of the adults to join in the fun,” she said. “As we all know, LEGO bricks are interactive entertainment that provide quality time together for everyone.”
