If you’re trying to find a concrete way to explain fractions that will grab your child’s attention, try creating Lego fractions.
For this post, I’m using 3/4 as the example.
Say, “See? Three out of 4 blocks are red. That’s what it means when we say ¾.” Now ask them something like, “What if I had 8 blocks? How would I show ¾ of 8?”
Keep going for as long as interest holds. Then let them create.
There are so many ways you can use Legos for education! I plan to write more posts on the subject when time allows. Right now it seems like I am using Legos several times a day to teach our two youngest boys!
