LEGO Education Letter Balance


Good morning everyone! Today I’m sharing one of our LEGO Education Co-op activities. The kiddos made a really cool balancing mechanism using levers, gears, and a combination of materials and components to make a machine to measure weight and balance load.

LEGO Education Go Carts & Sleds


We’ve been using the LEGO Education Simple & Motorized Mechanisms for our Co-op group for awhile now. Since we only meet once a month this kit is lasting us about 2 academic years which is nice.

Kindergarten Fun boxes
