A Subscription Service that combines the fun of building models out of Lego® bricks with a tangible exploration of fundamental math concepts. Intended for elementary age children, each box contains an exploration of fractions interwoven into the building instructions for each module of a configurable Castle. Each module prepares for future lessons.
The first box contains 100 bricks and a lesson introducing building fraction out of bricks. The final model is a segment of Castle wall that can later be placed anywhere within the Castle configuration. Also in the box is a minifigure, matching game based on the lesson, mechanical pencil, and other miscellaneous items.
Order by December 29th to get this box!
Q: How many boxes are in this subscription to complete the series? What about the Kindergarten one as well? ThanksAsked by Rosemarie P., November 2020
Thanks for your question. In the Zoo Collection, there are currently 6 models in the Animal Series (Patterns, Count by's, and Symmetry -- mainly Kindergarten level) 6 models in the Habitat Series (Addition and Subtraction -- Kindergarten/1st Grade) 6 models in the Food Series (Multiplication -- 1st Grade/2nd Grade) and 12 in the Gate Series (Multiplication, Division, and Properties there of -- 2nd/3rd Grade). That is a total of 30 models in the Zoo Collection covering Math Basics, Grades K thru 3.
We also have a Castle Collection where we explore Fractions. There are currently 24 models in this collection. Which explores what fractions are, improper fractions, ranking fractions, reducing fractions, as well as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with fractions.
We continue to...
Q: Does a mini-figure come with each box?Asked by Christi C., November 2020
Yes, we have special Castle themed mini figures including a horse minifig with green accents. One is included with each box until one of each type has been mailed and then they repeat. There are 2 female warriors as part of the minifig collection. A picture of each is included in the pictures. There are 8 unique but similarly themed minifigs as part of the collection.
Q: What is the last day that I can subscribe to get this month's box?Asked by Christi C., November 2020
Generally speaking, new orders placed by the 28th of the month will get a box mailed by the 5th of the next month (approximately 1 week later unless it is sold out before then).
Q: Are there enough supplies for 2 children to share one subscription box?Asked by Christi C., November 2020
There is only one model and one minifig included per box so it is recommended for only one child. However, if you have more then one child for whom this box would be good, please contact me directly and we will work out special pricing for additional models and minifigs to accommodate as many children as you need. Thanks for the question.
This is so great, my son loves it. He takes it off and does it all and then shows me the math portion he learned. There were a few pieces left out of the second kit but Tina promptly sent out the replacement. It's easy and fun when there is prompt communcation and solutions. I would highly recommend this!
This is an awesome idea! They actually build fractions, not just discuss what they are. I think it really helped my child understand how to interpret and do math with fractions. And they look forward to getting the next part of the castle. I contacted the seller and actually get a box twice a month. For us the timing of every other week is better than once a month. Fractions can be a hard topic to understand -- I know I struggled with them when I was in school -- but I think this makes it easier and I know it makes it more fun.
