Teacher Uses Lego To Explain Maths To School Children

Lego is hugely popular among most kids, but it looks like the pieces can actually be used as a maths aid! 

Alycia Zimmerman, a 3rd-grade teacher in New York, uses them to explain fractions, squares and other mathematical concepts.

“In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibility-packed math manipulative,” she writes in an article for Scholastic that goes more into depth about these bricks’ potential uses.

This is a super idea, as it increases the likelihood of the children engaging!
