Nearly everyone loves LEGO ® and recently we linked the bricks to Bible stories at Ann Cam School, Dymock, Gloucestershire. My daughter Aly and I took some weekly lessons with the year 6 children that we called BibleBuild. I told the Bible story and then Aly took over to suggest ways the children could use their imagination to build something that related to it.
It was fascinating to see the variety of ways they constructed their idea of the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve. Noah’s Ark was a challenge, especially when we tested their buoyancy. It was great to see that they grasped the size and shape in the Bible so different from most storybooks. When we described the Tower of Babel we had to use the Soft Brick Set as one of the towers reached the ceiling! Aly also has a website, www.bricks2learn.com where you will find much more.
