Using a collection of basic LEGO™ bricks and accompanied teaching materials, educators can teach cross-cutting concepts pertaining to biology, chemistry, and earth science and meets the Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS). 

This unit is appropriate for ages 11 and older. The students are introduced to atoms, molecules, compounds, and mixtures, using LEGO™ bricks as atoms. Participating in a hands-on wet lab, students experience a chemical reaction, and then they can model the same reaction with LEGO™ bricks.
