Kidizens Winter/Spring Program:
Our Kidizens Winter/ Spring program is a 19-week interactive learning session in which students meet once a week to build and manage their own LEGO city. The program meets from January-May.
In this continuation of our fall program, our Kidizens cities will continue their urban development. In January, we will begin the unit in which we study businesses. Each of the students will design, build and manage their own company. They will learn about bank loans, profits and insurance as they construct their store and appeal to customers through advertisements.
In the second half of the spring session, the kidizens will head for LEGO Island. In the process, the students will build old-fashioned ships and learn about explorers. Later, they will study the California Gold Rush and have the chance to dig for LEGO gold.
Additionally, the Kidizens Baseball League (always a huge hit) begins in March. Each city designs a team, logo, uniforms and a stadium for their team as we simulate games each week to see who goes on to the Brick Series.
Finally, at the end of the year, each student will build a history museum featuring photos of his/her many accomplishments at Kidizens throughout the year.
All the while, we will also be studying the court system, building city halls, solving water dilemmas, studying the environment, making our cities more environmentally friendly, building and selling cars, designing floats for the Kidizens May Fete Parade, constructing hospitals and constructing extravagant landmarks for our cities. It’s going to be a whole lot of fun!
Build From Ground Zero:
If you would like to experience the thrill of building an entire city from ground Zero, Our Monday Afternoon and Thursday Morning Kidizens classes in Los Altos and Wednesday morning, Wednesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon classes in Belmont are the options just for you! These classes are different from our other winter classes and are meant only for new students who did not participate in the fall. The cities that the kids build in these two classes will be built from scratch, following a 19-week course that will include highlights from our standard fall and winter/spring semesters.
Our kidizens will be building a brand new LEGO metropolis while also serving as a city council and government. In the first couple of weeks, each of the students will build a house in their city in which to live. They will also be learning about the “Dot Economy©” at Kidizens and deciding which objects to purchase for their own home.
In following weeks the kidizens will begin to think about what city buildings are necessary and begin construction on a farm, police station, fire station and power plant. They will also study the history and background of those subjects to gain a wider perspective before building.
During this session the kidizens will also design city flags, run a city-wide lottery, build and manage their own businesses, devise a city energy plan, build their own cars, hold a World’s Fair and much more!
In all, it is going to be a very busy and very fun 19 weeks at Kidizens!
Dates: The classes run the weeks of January 7th-May 24th with a week off for Winter Break and another for Spring Break during the first week of April.
