I saw this idea on Pinterest and after 20 minutes or so of trying was unable to find the original link. I loved this idea so much that I just had to make one for myself. I love Legos, my students love Legos and who couldn't love a Lego game?
Every student starts with a Lego person. The roll a dice (either a standard 1-6 dice and a 1-3 Super Duper dice work great) and see how many Legos they can collect as they move through the game board. Once every student finishes the game, or we run out of time, they count to see who has the most Legos to see who wins the game!
My students have been having so much fun with this one! They love seeing how tall their Lego towers can get and using the Lego people as game pieces. I love it because it's a great way to work in some basic math skills (you had two Legos and picked three, how many do you have now?) and fine motor skills of (connecting and separating Legos) into what we are doing. An added bonus is that it's been loved by 1st through 6th grade students, allowing me to leave the same activity on my table all day long.
Believe it or not the hardest part of getting this game together was convincing my mother to part with a small amount of my childhood Legos! I have three Lego people, and 35 blocks (4x2 bumps on top) for stacking. I have yet to run out even in groups of three.
