The Brick Chronicles :: Scrambled States

The Brick Chronicles feature unique creations made with Lego® bricks. Hopefully you, and the children in your life, will find them as inspiring as I do!

After challenging my students to build a (somewhat) 2-D map with Legos®, I thought they were ready to try and build one of the states. We read the very silly book, The Scrambled States of America, and each student went to work. I did leave the book open to the map of the U.S. – just in case they needed a reference guide.
