Teaching Addition with Lego

You will need three different colors of blocks to play this game. Sort them out according to their colors. Place a series of yellow Legos in a column, and next to them another column of blue Legos. You will now have rows of yellow and blue blocks adjacent to each other. Kids will have to count the total number of studs on the yellow and blue blocks and demonstrate the answer with a third color of blocks, continuing to make another column as they go on adding each row.
