Triangle Structures

We love block play at preschool because it fulfills so many developmental domains!

As students stack blocks, they are learning essential mathematical skills, such as matching, counting, and sorting!

As students organize them by shape and color, they are practicing early literacy skills (fulfilling the Language and Literacy Domain) such as symbolization and representation.

We can’t even begin to mention the fine and gross motor skills (Physical Domain), observation and divergent thinking (required for the Science Domain), and a host of other pertinent areas of development. For this activity, students created different structures with three-dimensional paper triangles.

Because these triangles were lightweight and flimsy, students had to concentrate on creating their structures without the triangles deteriorating or their “towers” falling!
