Literacy Corner: Lego-Infused Literacy
[Source: Literacy Worldwide]
The mysterious philosopher in Jostein Gaarder’s Sophie’s World defines Lego as the “most ingenious toy in the world.” When Sophie rediscovers a bag of abandoned Lego blocks in a closet, she remembers her childhood and the thrills of endless possibilities offered by this clever toy.
With Lego blocks, the same pieces can be assembled and reassembled into objects, prompted and limited only by one’s imagination. Thus, a castle today becomes a spaceship tomorrow, and a spaceship may easily morph into a fire engine by reassembling the same pieces in a new configuration.
However, Lego is much more than a building toy that comes in defined packages with step-by-step instructions, calling for the replication of an already imagined or popularized object.
