Build a Fence

10 min1 participant

Identify various brick orientation; recognize obstacles and solve problems while building a fence around the garden.

Let's play!

  1. Pick bricks to build a thin fence around the garden plate.

  2. Build it all the way around the garden, along the edges...

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • 30 random bricks

  • 1 bowl

Place 2 bricks on the base plate: vertically, in the top left corner, to begin a vertical column.

Place the 28 bricks in the bowl.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “What's your fence for? Can you show me?”.

  • Ask “What did you do to go around the corner?”.

  • Add LEGO mini figures to play with.

Possible variations

  • Change the number of starting bricks for the fence.

  • Change the size of the base plate.

  • Peer play: add base plates and build a bigger fence.
