LEGO Smart Activity By Daniel Carter, LEGO Education
The goal is to introduce students to the flags of the world. Flags represent many different people, places, and things. Exploring flags can be a fascinating journey into the history, mystique, origin, and lives of many cultures.
Using the bricks provided in a LEGO Smart Kit, ask students to build a structure based on the colors of various flags around the world. Each level of the structure must represent a color of a flag. For example, the American flag can be represented by a blue brick since blue is in the American flag, while a white brick can be used to represent the Canadian flag, and so forth.The structure with the most levels wins!
Flags can be from any country or represent any group, state, or organization. All levels must be the same height and fit within the confines of the previous level. The current record is nine levels!
