LEGO® House school program

Welcome to our learning universe

In LEGO® House, you have the opportunity, to take your 1st-6th graders to experience a school day in our inspiring surroundings. We have four school lessons which you can choose from, and common for all is that you learn through play. On this page you can read more about our approach to play and learning, you can find lesson descriptions for all four lessons and you can find practical information for booking and planning the school visit.

Learning through play

Play is the brain's favorite way of learning!

Play enables us to explore, practice and try out ways of handling challenges in the real world. Lifelong skills like problem solving, creativity, empathy, communication and teamwork all have their foundations in play. Therefore, all LEGO House school programs are based on a playful learning approach. Children’s learning should focus on a set of holistic skills that empower and equip them for the challenges they’ll face in their life.

Learning is an integral part of everything we do

The playful approach to learning used in the school program at LEGO House has been developed through decades of collaboration between the LEGO Foundation and some of the world's leading researchers in creativity, play and learning. In LEGO House, we have developed a school program based on the five characteristics that characterize playful learning, respectively: Joy, Meaning, Active participation, Repetition and Social interaction. In LEGO brick language, this means that we in LEGO House are based on a holistic approach based on five competencies, namely the physical, creative, cognitive, social and emotional competence. The lessons are based on one of the above, but draw parallels to the remaining competencies.

All lessons are also based on common objectives for the Danish primary school.

Five play zones – five competences.

Five play zones – five competences

This holistic approach to children's development is reflected in the design of LEGO House, which is built around different Experience Zones. Each of the zones focuses on one of the following five overarching competencies that apply to each of the school lessons:

  • Blue Zone focuses on cognitive competences
  • Green Zone focuses on social competences
  • Yellow Zone focuses on emotional competences
  • Red Zone focuses on creative competences
  • The roof terraces focus on physical competences

It is important to stress that these skills do not exist in isolation, but support each other throughout your playing experience in our Experience Zones and by participating in the school lesson.

The genuine playful learning experience

If you choose to participate in one of our school lessons, we guarantee a playful learning experience based on the following five characteristics for playful learning:

Joy. When children enjoy what they do and are internally motivated, they naturally seek information, take pride in challenges and remember things for longer. The school program is built upon playful learning.

Meaningfulness. Children learn through experiences that are relevant and meaningful, by exploring things in the environment that is familiar to them. Our school program relates the context to what the children already know and are interested in.

Active engagement. When children are active, they combine their body and mind to remember things better and more deeply. Naturally, LEGO bricks are used in the school program to ensure all children are actively engaged.

Iterations. Children learn most efficiently when they experiment with ideas, produce something new, and iterate by comparing new information to their previous understanding. The school program includes iteration loops. With LEGO bricks, you can easily build things you imagine, take things apart and test out new opportunities.

Social interaction. Children co-construct their knowledge in dialogue with other people. The brain learns efficiently through social interactions, jointly creating something and sharing their joy. The school program builds upon children working together and sharing what they are doing.
