LEGOs were one of my favorite toys as a kid. In fact, I will still play with them if they're plopped down in front of me. Earlier this week I read about the LEGO Creativity Contest.

Most of the activities that I explored in the LEGO Education activities list are geared toward elementary school and middle school topics. Here are a few of the activities that you can find in the list; calculating perimeter, calculating bouancy, and demonstrating proper food serving sizes.
