KS1 Sustainability Workshop Duration

Our KS1 Sustainability LEGO Building Workshop offers 75 minutes of immersive, hands-on learning. We begin with an engaging visual presentation that vividly illustrates the concept of climate change and its impact on the planet. During this session, we explore existing knowledge and discuss key facts about climate change, its causes, and its effects.

Following the presentation, we introduce an exciting LEGO building challenge. The children are tasked with constructing their own Eco Houses, focusing specifically on incorporating essential features such as wind turbines, solar panels, rooftop gardens, heat pumps, and wildlife habitats. We guide them on the key sustainable elements their LEGO designs should include and explain their significance in combating climate change.

To conclude the workshop, we review the children’s creations, summarise the key lessons learned, and encourage teachers to capture photos of the LEGO masterpieces. This workshop not only educates but also inspires creativity and critical thinking through playful construction, making environmental sustainability come alive for young learners.
