Do your children play with LEGOS? They are the toy of choice in our home with my oldest children.
We happened on the exhibit completely by accident but it made a perfect homeschool field trip. (KUDOS, LEGO corporation for turning something children love into something that teaches, too!)
The mall had huge displays set up with LEGO models of famous American landmarks. There were maps available so you could find your way around each one. The buildings include: US Capitol Building, The White House, Supreme Court, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, and Old North Church.
We saw many of these during our visits to Washington D.C. a few years back so our family enjoyed reading over the details.
(They did have some models set up just for fun, too!!)
We took our time and visited each one- we read the information on the building and then the information given on the LEGO model.
I’ve always wondered how long it takes a team to construct these big LEGO buildings and now I know!
My children have long been interested in building monuments at home. By the end of this day, they were already making their own LEGO creations by dinner that night.
