In our last post we announced that Stories From Our LEGO Town has its first affiliate! We are reviewing the Brick Ebook, Brick Animals. Each of the children will be trying to replicate the pictures from Brick Animals and doing the related worksheets. We will be sharing these with you as we do them.
Princess chose to make the panda bear for her first project. Princess loves panda bears because they are from China. Princess is fascinated with China and loves learning anything there is to learn about that country. She especially likes panda bears, as she thinks they look cute and cuddly :) In our homeschool Princess has been learning about China, so this fits in perfectly with what we are already doing in school! (If you are interested in seeing some of the other things we have done to learn about China and Asia, you can check out my homeschool blog, Dot-to-Dot Connections to see some of the things I have shared there.)
After Princess made the Panda Bear with LEGO bricks, she completed the accompanying worksheet. This gave us a chance to talk about how panda bears are mammals, like us, and they breath through lungs, have a backbone, are warm blooded, feed their young milk and give birth to live young. Princess knew most of that already, but it was a good chance to review what a mammal is.
