Something else I’d like to my students to remember: history is a story that can be told in many different ways. The following video is a beautiful animated short film that documents the history of one of the world’s favorite toys: Lego®.
You can find a bit more information about the video here: Lego Celebrates 80th Birthday with Whimsical Animated Short. For more about the Lego® company, visit their About Us page. You might also like to watch some of their other videos on YouTube here: Lego Club TV.
If you are a teacher, you should also check out Lego Education. They have so many great ideas for use in the classroom, including simple machines, robotics, and renewable energy.
