Laws of Motion

Introduce kids to physics, including the “Laws of Motion” made famous by Sir Isaac Ne

wton. By explaining terms like inertia and mass using simple words, Bricks 4 Kidz®  lessons give students a foundation for understanding concepts that they will delve deeper into in years to come. For now, they get to build fun stuff out of LEGO® Bricks   and create a positive association that science is fun! During this unit, kids will launch paper footballs at targets with the catapult model, give their mini-figures a ride on motorized see-saw and swing-o-rama rides, and practice telling time as they build the clock model. At Bricks 4 Kidz®, we know how to keep their hands and their minds busy! Who says physics is boring? Test out some of Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of motion with models that illustrate the concepts of inertia, force, mass, acceleration, and the observation that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. What will your reaction be to our Bricks 4 Kidz® action-packed after school class? We doubt you’ll “stay at rest” with these challenging projects designed to a
