KEVA Planks

From the United States of America to Canada and Kuala Lumpur, KEVA planks are changing the lives of children and adults all over the world. Children discover the joy of creating original works of art or cleverly designed contraptions. Creativity brings joy into the lives of humans which is why the arts are so important. At the same time, future architects and engineers are discovering their aptitude for building at an early age. Young KEVA builders today will be building our world in a few years.

KEVA Planks are great for:

Constructing simple and complex designs, for builders of all ages.

Making history come alive by building pyramids, castles, cityscapes, boats, bridges, towers and more.

Creating beautiful wooden sculptures.

Teaching concepts of economics, such as scarcity, natural resources and human resources.

Making mazes and amazing patterns.

Extending literature into the classroom. Re-create exotic or familiar settings from great stories.

Fostering creativity and imagination. The simplicity and uniformity of KEVA planks allows limitless possibilities in construction!

LEGO Bricks

Use LEGO Bricks to Create (or Illustrate) Stories

LEGO Bricks can be used to illustrate a historical story.

History lessons can be dry words on a page, or they can be an exercise in imagining what being there was like. Students tasked with building a model of the attack on the Bastille or creating a labyrinth inspired by the one in Greek mythology will be more actively engaged with those lessons than they would be after merely reading about them in a textbook.

LEGO Bricks can help inspire a new story.

Students are probably already doing this if they play with LEGO Bricks at home (or have a good example of how it works if they’ve seen The LEGO Movie). In class, encourage students to do it collaboratively in groups or to share the stories they’ve used the LEGO Bricks to create.
