LEGO® Minifigures have been inspiring children in a US school to create unique self-portraits.
The idea was the brainchild of art teacher Jennifer Leban who writes a weekly blog on the activities and art work of the children in the 690-pupil school in Elmhurst, Ilinois.
Why not try this idea with your class? Using LEGO Minifigures is a great way to capture the imagination of your pupils and start lively discussions exploring issues such as identity and community. Let us know how you get on.
If you’ve found an unusual way of using LEGO in your classroom, we’d love to hear from you. And for more inspiration and information, visit the LEGO Education website.
