Learning From Legos
By Erika Larkin on 12/26/13
It’s Christmas-time and I have two young children on the "nice list" — which means Santa brought lots of toys this year! My son is six years old and his world revolves around superheroes, iPad games, and Legos, amongst other things. He was so excited when an early present arrived in the mail yesterday from his Uncle and I allowed him to open it. So at 8:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve, he and I built the 300+ piece Lego set together. This is not my first rodeo; it is probably the 20th set I've helped him build, so by now I'm pretty proficient and efficient and it goes much faster than it used to — still tedious, but faster. It is fun to see it all come together and to see him playing with it is the best reward.
As I reflected on the experience and Legos in general, I thought of a few valuable lessons for building Legos and, of course, a better golf game too!
I hope this article helps you to better build Lego sets with your kids and a better golf game! Merry Christmas and have fun with you and yours this week! I also hope the New Year brings you good health, happiness and lots of birdies!!

It was a robot that, because of twofold jointed pivots, could constantly reconfigure itself without being dismantled.

I realized that it was the most I would ever do in the medium and the finish of an era. can someone do my coursework
