Cooperative building activities provide one of the most valuable learning experiences available for young children.
Play such as this stimulates learning in all domains of development, including intellectual, physical, and social-emotional and language.
In fact, current research shows that this type of instruction is fundamental for later cognitive success in mathematical and critical reasoning skills.
For this activity, we constructed a savannah out of wood planks, toy animals, and plastic grass.
Students worked together in small groups, constructing elaborate animal scenes that they played with alongside their friends!
