BricQ Motion Prime


To fully understand and support your students’ needs during a LEGO® Education BricQ Motion Prime lesson, we encourage you to explore and work hands-on from a student’s perspective.

Learning in Action

Watch Paige help her students practice devising with systematic tests by asking them to explore how the ratchets in the Gymnast model affect the car's motion.

Standards-Based Lessons

In the Gymnast lesson, student pairs build a gymnast-powered car and learn how it moves. In this lesson, your students will:

  • Explore the motion of a "gymnast" (i.e., pendulum) on wheels and
    explain how it demonstrates Newton’s three laws of motion
  • Predict how the forces acting on an object can change its motion

Standards Mapping

  • Next Generation Science Standards

    • MS-PS2-2 2: Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
  • International Society for Technology in Education

    • 4c: Develop & test prototypes
    • 6c: Clear & effective communication
    • 7c: Contribute constructively to project teams
  • Common Core

    • ELA-LITERACY.SL6.1: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 6 topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly.
