From Jack and the Beanstalk to the golden touch of King Midas, fairy tales have always engaged and captured imaginations. In BrickLAB Magic Beans, exotic, far-away lands, magical powers and the eternal theme of good versus evil come to life in thrilling engineering, language arts and collaborative communication challenges. Inside the world of princesses and wizards, students boost fluency, vocabulary and comprehension as they act out different folktales.
