LEGO Activity Zone returns to this year's festival with an all new Competition Oppertunity!
A special activity for children and youth will be held during the Kennett Alliance for the Arts' Fall Into Arts Festival to be held Saturday, September 7th, in Downtown Kennett, MO. Youth will have the opportunity to play with a core set of Lego Blocks, along with other donated for use blocks and sets. The LEGO area will be set up in The Opera House on the Northwest corner of the square.
LEGO® Education LearnToLearn is a hands-on educational tool that helps elementary school students experience the possibilities of what can be learned using LEGO Education solutions within design and engineering, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies while also building and reinforcing the most fundamental learning skills of the 21st century: collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving.
LEGO® Education LearnToLearn is based on the educational theory of Constructionism, which is rooted in the belief that children learn best when they experience things first-hand and within a meaningful context.
We have turned the principles of learning and knowledge into a practical, four-step learning process supported by all of our classroom solutions.
– Connect phase awakens pupils’ curiosity and the desire to learn.
– Construct phase encourages the pupil to tackle the challenge by building something functional or meaningful to them.
– Contemplate phase involves reflection and dialogue with the teacher and other pupils and reflects an assessment as part of the learning process.
– Continue phase gives pupils the opportunities to apply their newly acquired knowledge to new challenges and to take ownership of their learning.
Applying this process to curriculum content results not only in the acquisition of curriculum-related knowledge, but also in stronger fundamental learning skills.
The LEGO Activity Zone is open to all who want to participate. Tables will be set up in the Opera House on the Northwest corner of the Square. Festival goers are invited to play and create with the provided LEGOs. All LEGOs are to remain in the LEGO Activity Zone so everyone has equal oppertunity to create a masterpiece!
At the 2019 festival, there will also be an Onsite LEGO Creation Contest that will give youth a chance to show off their creative side and win prizes! The contest is open to all in grade 12 and under. This year's theme is "Fun at the Fair!". "Original" refers to no kit themed constructions.
