Learning through Play
with Six Bricks
Welcome to Care for Education
Care for Education is a non-profit organisation and partner of the LEGO Foundation. We provide training and educational resources for children, schools and organisations in need. We aim to impact early childhood development and primary education, using concrete manipulatives which engage children in playful learning.
Six Bricks Overview
Six Bricks is a concept designed to excite and motivate young children in the classroom to attain the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for success in later life. To help the formation of a young learner’s brain, developmentally appropriate early experiences and relationships are vital. In order to grasp concepts, children must be given time to manipulate concrete tools. They need opportunities to use their whole body to explore and aid their development of ideas, curiosity and imagination.
The Six Bricks activities are short, simple exercises or games designed to wake up the brain and get the child moving, thinking and remembering. They are not intended to be a curriculum, but they do support all areas of development in the curriculum.
