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.

Want to See Where Lego Designers Work?

Where Do Lego Designers Work?If you thought you had every reason to be jealous of Lego Designers, you know those wonderful people who get paid real money to work with Lego, well now there is another one to add to your list.

Here are some photographs of the LEGO PMD (Product & Marketing Development) Centre, as designed by Danish architects Rosan Bosch and Rune Fjord and based at Lego HQ in Billund, Denmark.

Inspired by the toy that they in turn inspire, the office is meant to encourage a playful mindset in members of the Lego Design team. Complete with slides, foosball (football) table, “clouds” and so much more the office is every Lego fan’s ideal home/work environment.

I have particular respect for how clean it is!

Considering how much Lego lies around our houses on any given day I wonder if they spent a few days cleaning up the space to take these photos and then let it all “go back to normal” afterwards. But seriously, I’m sure there is someone who’s job it is to pick up the Lego once the designers have finished “working” and then catalogue it away in those beautiful looking archive drawers according to size/color/shape.

Hmm, I think I’ve invented a new job for myself, “Lego Librarian” (I’m qualified you know).

Honestly some of the photos made my heart stop so I’m just going to stop talking and let the images speak for themselves.
