From books to bricks, learning is fun at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort

For most kids, heading back to school means back to bedtimes, and of course, back to the books. At LEGOLAND® Florida Resort we use bricks to build brain power outside the classroom! After all, what could be more fun than learning in a theme park that is built for kids?

The Resort offers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)-focused programs and an all new literacy focused program that meets the Florida State Standards.   Most importantly, our interactive in-park activities encourage kids to get hands-on as they learn about science, math and reading concepts through the creation and strength of structures, building simple machines, the art of storytelling, and more! We have educational guides on our website for teachers and parents who desire to learn more!

$10 Bill—Surfer Girl

One day, the fearless Surfer Girl grabbed her best board, and paddled to the middle of the LEGO Wave Pool. She surfed the tallest wave the LEGOLAND Water Park had ever seen.  Surfer Girl hung 10 on a swell that stood 10 feet high! And that’s why she’s on the 10 dollar bill.

While exploring a frontier a frontier we now call Florida, The Explorer came upon the greatest land he had ever explored! It’s where they eventually built LEGOLAND Florida—which makes him one of the greatest explorers in the world! And that’s why he’s on the $1 Dollar Bill.
