Legos In Math

For all out Lego-Whizes out there...wouldn't it be cool to make Lego-Themed math activities to interest and motivate them?

Thus far, I've found good ideas for the younger ages here at Little Brick Schoolhouse...

And here for 6th grade at Weird Richard...

Pictures adapted from Weird Richard.
But thats it.

That's all I got.

Looking for more ideas if anyone wants to join in on the post!

Hi! I just came across your blog. I am also a 6th grade Science and ELA teacher in New York (it's my first year!) I love all of your ideas so far! I have seen basic math done with Legos...students pick out a handful of them (all different sizes) and have to complete problems using the number of dots on the top (either multiply, divide, make a word problem, get to a mystery number), all using the randomized "numbers" given by the Legos!

@ L.DiBella- GREAT idea about using the legos for basic math. I could definitely use that in my resource room classroom! Thanks! :)
