Even though I think LEGO is possibly the greatest single “toy” invention of this generation, we have a love-hate relationship. I love the creativity they spark in my children. And yet, they seem to multiply by the thousands and I find them every where.
My kids will literally spend hours upon hours building and creating their own little village and world out of LEGO bricks. Of course we have bought kits over the years and they put those together almost immediately and start playing. But over time, they disassemble them and start creating their own unique worlds. And that is what I love about LEGO bricks!
Several years ago my kids were introduced the world of LEGO movies. I had no idea there were so many of them out there! These little cartoon-like movie/shorts are creative and fun! So when the first full length movie was announced, they were beyond excited!
And now they can’t wait for the second one to come out. In fact, they have been counting down the months and now days until the movie releases to the theater, even though we rarely see a movie before it’s on DVD.
Check out all our other Movie Studies!
Of course I wanted to capitalize on their excitement, so now we have a movie study for the original The LEGO Movie! It includes 4 pages of activities related to the first movie. These activities are perfect for upper elementary kids, but could be a great starting point for older kids as they work on an essay or project on the movie/story. Younger kids might also enjoy these activities depending on their learning level.
Discussion Questions are a great way to help kids work on their comprehension skills. You can also use the discussion questions to help them start a paper. The answers can be the points for an outline or to help them write a simple summary of the movie.
The discussion questions are great for kids of all ages. You can ask them in a group format or give each child a copy of the questions and have them write out their answers on their own paper . Giving them their own paper sneaks in a little handwriting and spelling practice too!
History of LEGO
Do your kids know the history of LEGO? Do they know who invented them? When they were invented? Or why? This page includes a short history of the worldwide popular “toy” with some simple comprehension questions. And you don’t have to limit it to this short history. Let your kids research as much as they want to expand their knowledge!
Check out our Movie Review to extend the learning!
This page gives students space to write out some descriptive words about four main characters. Use this activity to help your kids expand their vocabulary, by using synonyms in their descriptions. This is also a great way to help them think through each character and the way they are portrayed in the movie. Use this page as a pre-cursor to a descriptive essay on a specific character.
Compare & Contrast
From the minute the movie begins you are drawn in to the imaginary world of LEGO bricks and characters. It isn’t until the end of the movie that you find out it is a world created by humans and seen through the eyes of a child. This movie has a lot of contrasts and similarities to the human world. This page allows your child to explore them both.
Have a LEGO Movie Marathon
Whether you’re going to see the second movie in the theater or not, why not have a fun LEGO Movie marathon! Some of them have been on Netflix from time to time, so don’t forget to check there for some LEGO movies. But if your kids love them as much as mine, you might want to purchase them as well. Then invite some friends over and have a fun LEGO themed movie marathon and party!
