A dock is a structure built along, or at an angle from, a navigable waterway so that vessels may lie alongside to receive or discharge cargo.
Because we are learning about all things transportation, we built our own docks using blocks as our docks, plastic boats, and blue fabric as our “water”.
Children learn many concepts through block play.
Play with blocks provides an excellent opportunity for relaying concepts that are best understood by “doing”.
It also plays host to a variety of cognitive skills, such as symbolization and representation, directionality, divergent thinking, and logical reasoning.
