Lego English Activity Sheets – Indiana Jones & Mars Mission

Lego English Activity SheetsOne of the major reasons I purchase Lego books for my son is that I know he will read them, read them again and then re-read them (over and over).

Considering he is what you would call a “reluctant reader” this is is an amazing accomplishment and testament to the fact that kids will learn about what they are truly interested in.

The Lego Magazine has been a wonderful source of additional reading for my kids over the years and also has provided them with opportunities to practice their writing skills.

In 2008-2009 the magazine published Lego related stories that allowed children to fill in their own words and ultimately expand on or finish the story themselves. Personally I think these activities are a wonderful way for children to engage with writing without demanding too much from them – especially if they aren’t confident in creative writing.

You will notice that the two examples I have scanned below are blank – My kids were both too young for this exercise when the magazines came out, which is lucky for you! Hopefully you will be able to share them with your children and perhaps even help them make-up more Lego-related stories.

The following pages are from:

  • Indiana Jones Activity Sheet: Lego Club Magazine Issue 4 2009
  • Mars Mission Activity Sheet: Lego Club Magazine Issue 1 2008

Lego Hunt For R2-D2 Comic

Lego Star Wars Comic – The Hunt For R2-D2 Part 1

Lego Hunt For R2-D2 ComicIf you take a look at the expanded history of the Star Wars universe it seems that R2-D2, the little astromech droid who has been in all six Star Wars films, seems to get lost an awful lot…

First there was the Quest For R2-D2, a short film made to celebrate 10 years of Lego’s production of Star Wars sets.

The beautifully made details R2-D2’s adventures across the galaxy as he endeavours to elude Separatist forces and return his valuable cargo to Anakin and Co.

And then the accompanying online game The Quest For R2-D2 in which players must search for the diminutive little droid and the secret plans he is carrying.

Then came The Hunt For R2-D2, a two part Lego comic which detailed R2-D2’s exploits after being bounced out of the back of the Twilight spaceship. Part one of the comic appeared in the 2009 Lego Club Magazine, Issue 4.

Unfortunately I can’t seem to find Part 2 which no doubt appeared in Issue 1 of 2010. So if anyone has a copy of the magazine and would be able to scan it I would appreciate it greatly 🙂
