Thanks to everyone who joined us for a great Gears field trip on January 8, 2013 at Chesterfield Presbyterian Church. We learned how gears are used in every day objects, what they can do, and how to calculate a gear ratio. We then had a blast building a motorized LEGO model with gears of varying sizes. It really brought the lesson to life!
A Bricks 4 Kidz® field trip uses the LEGO® bricks kids love to deliver hands-on lessons correlated to cross-disciplinary curriculum objectives. The Bricks 4 Kidz approach to learning is imaginative, multi-sensory and fun, creating a dynamic learning experience for your students.
Bricks 4 Kidz models are the centerpiece of the lesson, which includes an educator-scripted discussion designed to engage students in a discovery process. Screened, trained Bricks 4 Kidz® teachers deliver everything needed, including LEGO® bricks, full-color model plans, and take-home materials.
Many field trips themes are available, from ancient history to space exploration, covering subjects like simple machines and laws of motion. We can even design a program specifically tailored to your curriculum. Programs are available in-school.
