Scholastic Learn at Home Hub | Why We’re Building Dominoes out of LEGO

Scholastic has launched a Learn at Home Hub to keep kids engaged while they’re home during the Coronavirus school closures.

There will be a total of 20 lessons released 5 at a time each week.

We’re working our way through the first week’s lessons and came across a lesson on how a professional domino builder (yep, that’s a thing) uses math to create domino art.

This resulted in us watching tons of YouTube videos on falling dominoes (oh the mess!)

G wanted more than anything to set up dominoes and knock them down.  But we don’t have any.

No worries.  He started building his own dominoes using LEGO bricks.

Now he can set up and knock down to his heart’s content.  He was up to 62 dominoes when I made him go to bed.  I’m sure he will get back at it in the morning.

How did your Day 1 of Quarantine go?
