Explore sports ranging from gymnastics to biking, mini-golf to hockey all with MOTORIZED LEGO® Bricks! This unit is a great way to get “sporty” kids building and get LEGO® fans interested in sports. Some lessons focus on the importance of physical fitness and different aspects of fitness, such as stamina and strength. Other lessons describe the mechanics of the sport, such as the physics involved in golf and the components of a stationary bike. But the best part for the students is the way the models move and the fun they have playing with them after they’re built - hitting a plastic golf ball with the mini-golf model and watching the gymnast spin around the bar. Maybe they’ll be inspired to try a new sport, or build a model of their favorite sport! This class is great for girls and boys!
