Classroom Ideas

Ask the children if they have been to Legoland and if so, what they saw there and how they thought the models are made. Use the clip to explain that a rectangular shape is made when you multiply the width by the length, so using your tables is a good idea. Using 16/ 20 bricks, what different rectangular or square shapes can the children come up with that can form the bases of our models at Legoland?
