In our classroom, we are always in interacting with play dough
.The most important benefit of playdough is the word “play”.
When teachers introduce playdough, they usually do not have an ultimate agenda or ending outcome – the children are simply given the opportunity to play.
To capitalize on this open-ended activity, we tied this in to our crustacean theme! Using play dough, crustacean shovels, and sand toys, we created the perfect crustacean environment.
