The skill of effective problem solving is a valuable and important one.
As a child looks at various pieces and figures out where they fit or don’t fit, he or she is developing this vital skill.
Diagrams, puzzles, and tangrams do just that.
Because the study of the human skeleton may seem like an abstract one for the average preschooler, we try to involve your little one in activities that appeal to their sense of play. For this activity, students used q-tips to construct a skeleton.
With a place mat as their guide, they placed q-tips onto various bones, counting as they did so.
Activities such as these teach children to use their own minds to figure out how to solve problems and think in a logical way.
