Bring bricks to your classroom to engage students with exciting Project-Based Learning activities that make learning fun! BrickLAB Core was developed specifically for grades 1-6 and is aligned with variety of national standards to help strengthen Common Core skills like science, math, social studies and literacy (see Alignments tab for more information). Based on the Madeline Hunter Lesson Model, BrickLAB Core reinforces knowledge by teaching concepts repetitively in new ways to develop increased neural pathways in each learner's brain, therefore solidifying new concepts.

With over 6,500 bricks, and a printed curriculum book for the instructor The BrickLAB Core set is a rich resource that brings the Common Core to life in your classroom and enables you to teach up to 30 students simultaneously. Improve student retention, engagement and test scores by incorporating bricks into the learning process.

By using bricks to encourage hands-on thinking and creativity, students pursue a variety of exciting and diverse topics from habitats, spatial relationships, map building, storytelling and more. Why teach topics like science, math, social studies and literacy in a 2-Dimensional fashion when you can turn all of them into engaging 3-Dimensional projects?
