Last week, my kids were reading through all the old Lego posts here on the blog. Their favorite posts to read were the Lego Challenge ones. Afterwards, they wanted to do a Lego Challenge and have me blog about it. Of course, I said yes, because Legos and education and blogging are always a great idea!
For this Lego Challenge, I had them build a playground that uses simple machines. The idea comes from this site: Educating Young Engineers. Two of my boys also wanted to write about their playgrounds, so I’ll be posting their writing along with the pictures of their playgrounds.
