Provocations are materials or the way we present materials to create a context where the child can explore.
They are designed to encourage to extend their thinking.
Provocations provide a challenge to move children to deeper levels of critical thinking of how to design their structures and how to expand into more complex play.
For this provocation, students were presented with regular blocks, castle blocks, and toilet paper tubes.
Students were encouraged to construct their “castles” as part of our medieval theme.
