This month, we are learning all about arctic animals.
Using wooden play dough hammers, we practiced freeing our arctic friends from large chunks of ice.
This encouraged motor development, hand-eye coordination, creativity, and math and science skills!
As young children explore with age-appropriate tools, they use small and large muscles.
As they make decisions about the orientation of the hammer, they participate in problem solving skills.
Lastly, as they complete their project, they experience a feeling of accomplishment. Most importantly, they had fun while doing it!
