STEM Through Constructive Play
Read our latest, blog post. Still Life in Motion.
Blocks are an important necessity in a classroom to facilitate the discovery and skills that we expect for our children. Both structured and unstructured STEM activities are more successful when children are given materials of multiple different sizes and shapes as well as extra items in order to extend their play from strictly STEM to beyond. As well as blocks, accessories such as cars, signs, garages, and people help children to use their imagination and continue to use their structure and creations for play. When children are engaged in imaginative play, not only do they develop creatively but they also lean to become flexible thinkers and are able to modify and tweak their original STEM design.
