In our class, we provide environments that encourage and enhance problem solving.
It is for this reason that we often incorporate block play into our curriculum.
Block play encourages a child to test spatial relationships and mentally rotate objects in the mind’s eye.
Such practice might lead kids to develop superior spatial abilities.
Within our week of the polar bear, we constructed a variety of polar bear habitats using a variety of materials.
For this activity, we constructed habitats out of white blocks. Using their thinking minds, students created a variety of structures with their friends!
