Homeschool Days at LEGOLAND Discovery Center, Chicago

Filed under: Daily News,Educational Adventures — dailynews @ 2:00 am

Just step inside LEGOLAND Discovery Center and it’s like you have just jumped into the biggest box of LEGO bricks ever!  Journey through a medieval castle on the Dragon ride, pedal to the skies on the Technicycle, feel a part of the story in the 4D cinema, learn top LEGO building secrets from the Master Model builder, see iconic landmarks in MINILAND, make a celebration even more memorable in one of their special party rooms; and much more…..it’s the ultimate place for all LEGO fans–young and old!

A visit to LEGOLAND Discovery Center is the perfect place for the whole family to enjoy time together!  (Recommended ages: 3–10)

LEGOLAND Discovery Center (LDC) has designed Educational LEGO Workshops as an added bonus to homeschool field trips.  LDC workshops correspond directly to State Learning Standards and come complete with teacher’s notes and take home worksheets.  Your group will journey through an interactive LEGO world of color and creativity where interaction, learning and fun go hand in hand!

LDS offers a variety of Education Workshops throughout the school year, usually changing in the fall and spring.  Now through Mary 25, 2011, LCD is offering a free Pablo Picasso Workshop for homeschool families looking to schedule a trip.

The Pablo Picasso Workshop introduces students to the use of alternative artistic media, increases knowledge and appreciation for modern artwork both in and outside of Chicago, and uses arithmetic and geometry to introduce the concept of geometric scaling.  The workshop can be scaled or alternated to accommodate any age.

If you don’t live near Chicago, check to see if there is a LEGOLAND near you–because fun learning is forever learning!
