LEGO Braille Bricks activities
The braille teaching materials are meant as suggestions for getting started with LEGO Braille Bricks, enablingteachers to create playful braille lesson plans. Each activity can be varied in the level of difficulty according to the child’s motivation and level of knowledge about Braille. Each child is different, and it is important to work and play with the bricks with respect to the child’s development stage.
The braille activities are divided into:
