LEGO really wants to teach children more than just using their imaginations. Now, the company wants to tackle environmental issues and animals.
While many people may just see LEGO as a company that produces plastic bricks that people can stack and create some amazing products, it sounds like the company wants to be known for something much more than that. In fact, they want to push the boundaries when it comes to fun education and learning.
Some of the LEGO sets you are able to get on the market today are packed with information about how to build the given project. But on the company’s Instagram account, it sounds like they also want to teach children about animals and the environment from a LEGO perspective.
On their Instagram account, the company recently shared a photo of a polar bear made by the company. There’s also a picture of a real polar bear in comparison. In the caption, LEGO explains that the fur isn’t actually white, but clear and appears white when the sun reflects on it.
In addition, the company’s effect to teach kids about animals is awesome, as they write that the polar bear is meat eating, has 0/5 in the pet companion section, and it would require 240,000 LEGO pieces to complete it.
The picture and the information is made with the National Geographic for Kids, an amazing platform that teaches children everything they need to know about animals. It’s really a great way to encourage children to learn about animals.
The polar bear could be a great Christmas idea for the young builders, as buying 240,000 white pieces may be a bit extreme. Plus, you’d need the space for a real-life polar bear. While it may not be a project for your kids, you may be able to take it on.
What do you think about this effort to teach young builders about animals?
