THE LEGO CIVICS PROJECT

Build Your Lego City. Then Learn to Govern it...

The Lego Civics Project

As our students build a fully-planned and intricately-designed Lego city, they also learn to govern it. Students learn about elections, laws, city planning, economics and the environment as they serve on a city council which must make key governing decisions about their city. They work on committees to design their official city flag, design their city’s currency and create a constitution of laws. Students have the opportunity to run for mayor, open their own business, debate city issues and design city buildings. Social studies, history and civics have never been so fun!
