The day Lego started – level 2


Lego was started on August 10, 1932, in Denmark by Ole Kirk Christiansen.

The name Lego comes from the Danish words ”leg godt,” which mean ”play well.”

At the beginning, the company produced wooden toys.

In 1958, Lego introduced the special bricks which fit together perfectly. They could be used to build many different things.

The bricks made the company famous, and Lego became one of the world’s biggest toy producers. Lego sells products in more than 130 countries.

The largest Lego tower ever built was 35 meters tall and was constructed in Milan, Italy in 2015. It used over half a million bricks and took five days to build.

Difficult words: mean (to have a meaning), brick (a hard block used for building walls), fit (to be the right size to go somewhere).

What other structures have been built using Lego bricks?
