We have been blessed with a free copy of the ebook, Brick Animals, by Stef and Jake Layton. Stef and Jake are a mother and her 11 year old son, who have teamed up to make these fun ebooks to inspire creativity with LEGO bricks. Now my children are reviewing the ebook so they can share with you how wonderful it is :) You can find a complete list of the kids Brick Animal projects here.
Little Man chose to do the snail as his first project from Brick Animals. While building a LEGO snail, he learned a new word: gastropod. We also talked about the different kinds of snails there are and what kind of snails we have around here. The kids love snails and collect them anytime we are near water in the summer :) Below is a picture of the page from Brick Animals that Little Man used for this assignment. After completing his LEGO snail, Little Man drew a snail shell as he was asked to on the worksheet. He then decided it looked more like a lemon than a snail shell :)
